Error at the print shop!
I have 34 beautiful copies of “Moon Goddess” and I’d love to ship them to a conductor with a fabulous SSAA choir! I will take a smiley emoji as payment. Message me if you’re interested. 🙂
I have to go to the post office tomorrow ANYWAY…. 🙂
Jocelyn Hagen shared Angelica Cantanti Youth Choirs's live video.12/10/2018 at 8:35am
I started my morning by listening to this INCREDIBLE performance of “Starting Now” by the Angelica Cantanti Youth Chorus, under the direction of Philip Brown. Absolutely stunning. If you need a quick pick me up this morning, or something to start your day on a high note (!) go to 35:25, and listen. 🙂
Most conductors will seek out and appreciate ‘fresh’ versions of classic, traditional, or historic December melodies, such as the ancient “Veni Emmanuel” chant. This concert setting of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” by Jocelyn Hagen is both mysterious and vibrant. The first two verses have overlapping fragments of the melody, initially by chorus then by soloists over a lush choral background, leading into a resounding “rejoice!” refrain. As the composer explains: “The true climax occurs in m. 64, when the choir unites in homophonic texture to sing “O come, Desire of nations, bind all peoples in one heart and mind; Bid envy, strife and discord cease; fill the whole world with heaven’s peace.” The score ends with a gentle and very haunting, breathless close. A personal favorite Advent score of mine! ✨
This morning I’m sitting down to engrave this new piece, “Perception,” the 8th movement to my multimedia symphony. There’s three minutes of music on this page! (But I know I’m the only one who can decipher it.)
