I composed Angele Dei in West New York, NJ in June of 2019.This piece is a SATB setting of a medieval latin prayer. It is a 2 minutes piece that may bring piece and beauty to whoever performs it and listens to it. There are lots of independent movements in each vocal part. In this piece, I have tried to give each part easy melodic lines and at the same time, make the text as clear as possible.

The Micro Mass
I composed The Micro Mass in New York City in 2020. This piece sets the invariable portions of the Eucharistic liturgy (principally that of the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, and Lutheranism) to choral music. This very “short mass” can be performed separately or in its entirety. Although it is recommended that this work should be performed a cappella, the piano reduction can be played during live performances as a “support” for the singers. Also, every movement features one section of the choir as the melody, giving the opportunity to singers in every section of the choir to carry the main theme. This work was created to address the need for liturgical music that does not take much time from the service and still can feature the beauty and the poetry of these sacred texts. The entire Mass can be performed in approximately 6:00 minutes.

Pain is a Virtue
click for audio

We love pain.We love being in it.We even consider pain a virtue.When a woman cries the most at a funeral, She must be the best living soul.And even if those tears are fake and pitifulWe prefer to believe in her show.We promise to never forget each other, But for now, so brief are our lives.We promise to feel the sting of loss, forever.But forever is just a blink of your eyes.You should move past your pain, If you say “forever”, don’t mean it with devotionYou should heal, move on, be sane.Because pain is no more than a useless emotion.We love pain. We love being in it.We even consider pain a virtue.Pain is my Virtue.
