Procession in D Minor Inspired by Recent Events

As I have mentioned before inspiration can come from any aspect of life from within and from what surrounds us. Recent events have served as the impetus for creativity for me. A few weeks ago I was so overwhelmed with emotion, sadness, courage, and inspiration to compose the piece Procession in D Minor (for Full Orchestra and SATBB Choir) and Procession in Minor (for Wind Ensemble and SATBB Choir). More recently I completed the Procession in D Minor collection with Procession in D Minor (for Four Pianos with Eight Hands). It is deep, profound, and filled with a mixture of the emotions I was feeling during my writing of the pieces. There is an undertone of sadness yet its build in processional style is indicative of courage to overcome adversity, to face challenges, and to honor those who have been taken away from us.
