Dona nobis pacem (ALVEF2016)

Maruo-Dona-SATB-Cover-JP

Commissioned and (will be premiered) on 16th July, 2016 by Kindai Choir, conducted by Noriyoshi Wakizaka.

Composer Kikuko Maruo has a reputation to create Japanese oriented sound, with unique rhythm with percussions, but this time, new challenge towards sacred music.

Various elements of her music can be observed, but quite brilliant piece for concerts and performance by small ensemble or large choir.
