O Magnum Mysterium

For soprano solo, SATB choir with divisi, electric piano and electric fretless bass

The solo melody is reminiscent of ancient Native-American melodies. Composed on commission by the Sonoma Chamber Choir in 2008, revised in 2010, adding electric piano and electric bass.

O great mystery, 

and wonderful sacrament,

that animals should see the newborn God, 

lying in a manger!


O blessed is the Virgin whose womb 

was worthy to bear 

the Lord, Jesus Christ.


Nasce la Gioia Mia

Madrigal for double choir

Inspired by Primavera's madrigal and Late Renaissance Italian tradition of works for double choir.

My joy is born

Every time I look at my beautiful sun,


And my life is over

Any time I don't see it,

For its glance is such,

That makes me always entirely blessed.


O sol, immortal soul

Do not ever hide 

That I can see with certainty

That if I don’t look at you

I could have nothing worse.
