It’s always a special feeling to deliver something that you worked on for a long time. Today I delivered a commission from The University of South Carolina, USA: STABAT MATER for 2 soloists (Alto & Tenor), Mixed Choir, Woodwind quintet, Harp and strings. It has a duration of about 50 minutes divided into 18 separate movements. I started the process last year in February and had already done a first complete set of music in March. But it’s a good thing when one have plenty of time to let things grow within yourself. A lot of things happens while time just passes. So after being busy with many other projects I started reworking everything in September and really get into the orchestration which finally ended up with a new version by the end of October. I also had to produce a vocal score with a piano reduction and that I finalized just before Christmas. Today I made the delivery and are very satisfied!
