Kristina Vasiliauskaitė

Vocal music predominates in both major trends of Kristina Vasiliauskaitė’s (b. 1956) creative output – church music and music for children. This natural inclination towards means of vocal expression has, to some extent, predetermined her penchant for small-scale forms (songs, sacred songs, pieces), plain textures characteristic of church music, diatonic organization of pitches and tuneful melodies imbued with romantic emotionality.

Works for organ make up another important trend in her music with her brother, organist Bernardas Vasiliauskas, as a regular performer. The music of Kristina Vasiliauskaitė has rapidly become popular among various choirs in the USA, where her music has been published by California based choral music publisher, Santa Barbara Music Publishing and Augsburg-Fortress Publishers in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
