SATB choir a cappella

“Nocte fletuum angelis” is a choral setting of a brief poem written on the evening of December 14, 2012, as the terrible dimensions of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut became apparent.  The poem and this musical setting are dedicated to the twenty children and six adult victims.  In paradisum deducant angeli…



Nocte fletuum angelis.
Mundi frangitur.
Vocis voces in caelis
Clamant lucem extinguitur.

Night of weeping angels.
The world is shattered.
Voices resound in the heavens,
Crying out that the light is extinguished.
