Composer I - "Reverence" - Composer's comment on this piece: "This piece could be considered either a sacred composition or a secular work depending on how you decide to interpret the meaning. Scored for SSAA, boy soloist, percussion, cello, and accompaniment track, the words and key of the cello melody contradict each other. The piece starts off with a soprano vocal soloist singing, “Rule me, and don’t even touch me,” but while the boy soloist sings these words from Revelation 21:4: “He will wipe away all tears from their eyes, there will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain, the old things have disappeared,” the SSAA choir sings these words, “And binding with briars all my joys and desires,” depicting the church’s hold on man’s nature, and although the cello is playing the melody from the hymn “Amazing Grace,” it is not in the original major key but a solemn minor key." https://app.box.com/s/x2xlq4807u8va5sfy860jkwcrt5irn8p

The fun categories part is messed up. You can vote for several compositions in a single category, but you can't vote for a single composition in several categories. Should be the other way around, I imagine.
I am immediately assuming that Composer H is Serenity "Oo" Laine.
