Carpe Somnium (SATB)
While I breathe, I hope. Seize the days, seize the night. Seize the dream.
This original text and music accentuate a sense of drive, energy and dynamism to encourage us to pursue our dreams. Commissioned as a set piece for the prestigious National Music Competition for Young Artists in the Philippines, the piece is filled with rich harmonies, exciting meters and interesting textural choices that stimulates the spirit within us to seize our dreams day and night, while we still breathe and hope. A challenging work high school and adult choirs alike.
