MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

My setting of the text Te Deum is finally edited!!

This is a Choral/Orchestral work of some magnitude. The forces required are 4 soloists, SATB Choir, Full Orchestra including Wagner Tuba....it has taken 10 years to complete. Mind you, I have not been working on it consistently during that period but the Piano Score was created in 1999.

 I balked at the Orchestration for a long time as I had not previously orchestrated my own work, however after undertaking some studies with  a good Japanese Professor and then an Englishman, I began to work with it myself. 

 

 In a few days, the final Masters will arrive in the post and I must decide the best way to proceed with promotion. This work again, like other works of mine, has an Astrological slant. I will try to put this on the site for those who might be interested.

For myself, it has been an awesome event!! I mean the writing of it, the 'feeling' of it and the ' sound' of it. Pete , my Editor said ' Jil, This is a bit Mahlerish'....I wasn't sure how to take that !! as I.m not particularly Mahler orientated.

 My French Grandchild ( aged 11 ) painstakingly illustrated the covers for six of the scores to be given to particular friends. She's done a fine job of a Wagner Tuba in Gold on the deep blue cover, furthermore she uses my machine for making the scores and then fixing the covers.....that is the most special part of the work for me!!!!Have a lovely evening all xx
