Alma Beata et Bella

Alma Beata et Bella

I found the poem from which the text for this piece is excerpted when perusing an old book of 15th-century Italian poetry. I decided to set the poem in its original Medieval Italian dialect. The piece is a six-minute slow swirl of voices moving toward heaven and light. It culminates by “blooming” as the soul reaches heaven.

Commissioned by the Rose Ensemble with major funding support provided by a grant from the Jerome Foundation facilitated by fiscal agency from the Schubert Club. Additional funding provided by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council.
