Composition

One of my major projects I plan on undertaking is to write an entire set of Choral Offertory and Communion Propers for the Church Year.  Nothing like the old Renaissance polyphonic settings, but short, moderately easy pieces that include the Latin incepit and the English translation.  And hopefully INTERESTING.  The hard part about a project like this is making all the pieces stand as uniquely as they can.  I will certainly admit that much of what I do can all sound the same after a while, but that is the challenge of the composer!  This piece comes from the Gospel of John, Chapter 6: the Bread of Life discourse.
