O My Son, My Son Absalom

SATB a cappella
This piece was the winner of the iCoristi Choral Composition Competition (say that five times fast) in 2015. The piece is a very accessible SATB divisi a cappella setting on the familiar passage from ll Samuel “O my son, if only I had died instead of you”. Rich harmony and full dynamic range allow the passion of the text (sung in both english and latin) to be experienced by singer and audience member alike. This piece is published by Renforth Music

I currently do not have a recording of this piece to share with you, maybe you’d like to record it with your choir? (Please contact me if you would be interested in having your recording featured both here and at Renforth Music.)
