Just completed tonight: a bitter-sweet musical composition! THE CLOCK (Zegar) for two-part children’s chorus and piano, a setting of Words by Abraham (“Abramek”) Koplowicz (b. 1930, Lodz, Poland, d. 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau) as translated by Sarah Lawson and Małgorzata Koraszewska. I am already shopping it to a first-rate choral director. :-)
I hope you enjoy this YouTube music video of my SATB arrangement of VOCALISE by Sergei Rachmaninoff performed by the National Lutheran Choir, David Cherwien, Conductor.
Here is my YouTube video for my setting of PSALM 1.
At long last, I have a recording of my challenging SATB choral work PSALM 1 (1998, publ. 1999) recorded alone by the versatile vocalist Matthew Curtis (www.choraltracks.com). https://soundcloud.com/stanley-m-hoffman-1/psalm-1
