Just in time for mother's day....   "A Mother's Devotion" for orchestra.  

I wrote this piece last week in memory of my mother, who passed away Easter Monday. I gleamed my creative side from her, no doubt.  She was an artist, photographer, and songwriter!

I started composing this piece after being inspired by a Lili Boulanger piece I heard on the radio. That was day one.  On day two, I ended up writing in a different, more tonal approach. Day two simplicity irked me at first, but after orchestrating it all, I believe it works together somehow. It also gives it some development. Let me know what you think.

I hope you enjoy it!  Happy Mother's Day to any moms out there.

  • Hi Brandon, 

    Everything about this nicely done tune says "movie." It is well orchestrated and sentimental in a good way. I think your mother would be proud of this. Thanks for sharing!


    • Gav, thank you for the kind words.
