Author's Note

In this podcast, I compose a choral piece while explaining my ideas and motivations in the process. I make several connections to older classical pieces I have sang or heard and also connections with certain elements of music. The first three episodes were produced around the same time; the final episode came later and worked to further refine the composition. The final melody is not in its final form, but it shows the potential of my future composition that I plan on singing with my choir. Enjoy!

Episode One: Getting to Know Me Musically

Episode Two: The Opening

Episode Three: Completing the Incomplete

Episode Four: The Digital Update
