The Temptation

Another one of my takes on a lectionary scripture. This one draws from Matthew 4:1-10 and Luke 4:1-12 (these separate scriptures tell essentially the same story), wherein Jesus is in the wilderness for 40 days, being tempted by the devil.

This piece was the result of an auction where I donated composing services to put the winning bidder's original poem to music. I had my doubts at first when I read it, but it really turned into an amazing song in the end. It is especially effective as a special number for Good Friday. There are opportunities for up to 11 solos (which can also be sung in unison if the choir doesn't have strong enough singers).

Ave Maria (1st of 3 Motetes)

This is the first of 3 Latin motets for liturgical use, first published in 1861 by Hilarión Eslava.
ABOUT THE COMPOSER:
A renowned composer and musical educator in XIX century Spain, Miguel Hilarión Eslava y Elizondo was born in Burlada (near Pamplona, Navarra, northern Spain) of humble parents in the year 1807, and died in Madrid in 1878. Eslava began his musical studies as a child choir member in Pamplona's cathedral when he was 9 years old. He took on religious orders, which enabled him to pursue a successful musical education and later, professional musical career. He competed in 1828 for the position of Chapel Master at the cathedral of Burgo de Osma (Soria), which he won. Soon thereafter, he then moved to Sevilla, following his appointment as the principal organist at the Cathedral. In 1844, he competed for the post of, and was appointed Master of the Royal Chapel to Queen Isabel II in Madrid, a post he maintained (only interrupted by Spain’s First Republic) until his death. Eslava is the author of over 140 religious works and operas (few of which appear to have survived, however), and was a well-known musicologist, publisher, and educator. His Método de Solfeo is still used today. His best known composition is a Miserere he wrote for choir and orchestra, which since its publication has been traditionally performed during Holy Week throughout Andalucía. My husband and I had the great fortune in 2016 to hear it played to a full house at the Real Parroquia de Santa Ana (known as the Catedral de Triana), in Sevilla. There are numerous renditions of this piece available online and a few recordings as well.

An interesting side note, and the primary reason for my interest in Eslava, is that he is my husband's great-great grandfather.

Based primarily on John 12:1-8, and also reflecting Mark 14:3-10, this song tells the story of Mary annointing Jesus' feet with oil a few days before the Last Supper and the betrayal by Judas.

A Peaceful Piece for Solo Piano and String orchestra, I hope to use this in something longer, but maybe some other time. The piano is me playing (: - https://youtu.be/a2rSDi0EIHQ
I actually came up with this theme on the fly, it took me as long as the piece is to write it (well, the piano part, it took longer for the strings haha)

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Every year, our family puts on a music program at a local nursing home on Christmas Day. It's a tradition we have all grown to love. Last year, I arranged this duet to play with my brother. We had a blast, and I hope you do as well! Enjoy the dramatic moments and be sure to observe the subito dynamics throughout.
