Description About the Composer
 

Dona Nobis Pacem (Level IV) - which means “grant us peace,” is a song with a widely-known text from the Latin Mass. In this arrangement, I used mixed elements of the music that I love: a very traditional Cuban rhythm called bembe, which is derived from the Yoruba culture of West Africa; the Yoruba text “Funga Alafia,” which also means “grant us peace”; little sparkles here and there of Irish music’s feel and rhythms; a little bit of jazz in terms of the harmonic texture, and of course, classical music. The clave of the clapping is based upon the bembe rhythm, but the texture of the music is less “Latin American.” I would like the melodies to be sung rather in the style of Early Music with pure straight tones, rather than trying to sing like Cuban mambo. As far apart as one may imagine they are, to me, they are not. When it’s done correctly, I envision that they gel into each other, just like the world is supposed to do in front of the mother nature.
