Laudate Dominum

Taken from Psalm 116 (117), this work is specially written for the Methodist Girls School (Secondary) Choir. The ecstatic, euphoric joy in this piece is inspired by the coming of my first child. The SSA version of this work was premiered on 18 July 2010 at the Singapore Conference  Hall by the MGS Choir. It has been reprised and the Hungarian premiere was performed by Musica Nostra conducted by Professor Zsuzsánna Mindszenty in Budapest, Hungary on 14 December 2013. The SAB version was performed on 14 May 2011 at the NAFA Lee Foundation Theatre, Singapore by the International Festival Chorus (Singapore) conducted by Alan Chong.

Written at a time when I was studying with Leong Yoon Pin, the work is informed by organum, Bachian counterpoint, Indian ragas and a dash of Guns & Roses!
