Category: MN COMPOSERS
Composer: Paul John Rudoi
Voicing: SATB, SA, TB, a cappella with optional drum
A completely unique, accessible concert round with evocative Sanskrit text. The ever-innovative Rudoi provides a variety of options to make this powerful work completely customizable (though you can also just perform it straight through as notated), with options for movement/procession/formation change, additional instruments, and vocal and instrumental improvisation. This work can be transformational for singers and audience alike. The message, mantra-like quality, aural space created, and invitational nature of the piece combine to make this appropriate for church and worship settings, as well. Rudoi encourages you to make the piece your own and has provided this short video (see below) with all sorts of ideas on how to adapt the piece and make it wholly unique to your choir.
