Unlike the other fughettas I have written for this set of chorale preludes, the cantus firmus never appears in its entirety. The subject is, however, derived from the familiar opening of the chorale…Continue

"The rendering sounds very realistic, but it's hard to hear the cantus firmus."

"I had a quick look at the score and… I couldn't understand the text :-) Is it some sort of Invisible Latin (given that the title is in visible Latin)? So how am I to relate to it as a vocal piece? To check metre, accent, rhythm, rhyme,…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I am currently a second year law student in Philadelphia. I enjoy composing in my free time, and have a particular love of counterpoint, particularly fugue. Most of my compositions are for solo instrument or small ensemble, but I have plans to expand to choral and orchestral writing. Within my small circle I actually have a number of "devoted" fans. I hope that my music speaks for itself.
