Sanci Kuni (2010), 4 minutes
For mixed a cappella choir
Premiere: May 28, 2010, Suwon, S. Korea, Suwon Civic Chorale, In-Gi Min, conductor. Commissioned by the Suwon Civic Chorale.
This work is inspired by the folk chants and wailings found in many cultures. The text is entirely a made-up language that I invented to evoke a rustic setting. To ensure that this short work makes an immediate impact on the singers and audience, I wrote a tuneful melody that is treated throughout the work with unusual harmonies and accompaniment. To honor the occasion of writing for Suwon Chorale, this composition celebrates the fusion of different traditions coming together in one concert.
Text Sanci Kuni (invented by the composer)
Ya hey ni sanci kuni panti
Ahni sami nu kanna manti ku santi gu ma tian ahni sami nu
