    Hi all!

    In September 2021 I completed a my undergraduate composition recital at Gustavus Adolphus College in collaboration with the theory/composition professor there. A 45-minute multi-movement piece written for SATB, piano, violin, trombone, and clarinet, it was entitled "Luminous," and followed the Luminous Mysteries of the rosary. Thought this might be the right forum to share, if for nothing other than your viewing pleasure. I am the singer on the far right of the video (the one who reads the scripture passages).

    Movements (with scriptural readings and Gloria Patris interspersed at the appropriate moments):
    Apostle's Creed - 2:20 in the video
    Our Father (based heavily on the ICEL chant) - 5:40
    Ave Maria - 7:00
    1. The Baptism - 11:38
    2. The Wedding Feast at Cana - 19:41
    3. The Proclamation of the Kingdom (this is the only movement that is not mine. For this setting, please contact Dr. Alexandra Bryant at - 25:32
    4. The Transfiguration - 32:54
    5. The Institution of the Eucharist - 41:08
    Salve Regina - 48:19

    I would be happy to rescore this (especially in reduced form for organ) is anyone is interested in performing the pieces in a devotional setting.

    Here is the recording:
