Laude! is my latest collaboration with my friend and partner in crime Garth Bardsley.
Approximately 23 minutes in duration, Laude! celebrates celebrates Peace and Hope during a time of emptiness and despair. The work borrows melodies and words from the 13th century Italian Codex Laudario di Cortona with the addition of profound and beautiful contemporary words by Garth Bardsley.
Laude! is in three movements. The titles and start times for each are listed below. Please enjoy!
1. Gloria’n cielo (0:00)
2. Sovrana sì ne sembianti (9:05)
3. Stella Nuova (18:00)
Laude! was premiered by The Crane Chorus and Orchestra, Jeffrey Francom, conductor and Shannon Standard, soprano, on December 4, 2016 at Helen M. Hosmer Hall, The Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam, Potsdam, NY.
