Tabula Rasa/SSAA

This emotionally uplifting work relies on gentle dissonances that ebb and flow with the spanish text. It has been performed by youth choirs as well as professional ensembles and would make a great choice for festival competition.

TABULA RASA was the winning composition of the 2010 DaCapo Chamber Choir NewWorks competition.

Description

Tabula Rasa – This Latin phrase translates as “Blank Slate” in English. I had a specific image in mind when composing this music. A quiet moment between a mother and child when the mother sees, as she has never seen, the potential of the precious life she holds in her arms. A silent acknowledgement of her child and every child as a “blank slate” with seemingly limitless potential.
