Windows of Grace (Finestre Graziose)
Instrumentation: Two-part, mixed or equal voices, and organ
Appropriate for choirs of all levels
Suitable for worship or performance
Written between November 2007 and August 2009, this set of four motets were written for, and dedicated to the Choir of Grace Episcopal Church in Newton, Massachusetts, and its director, Dr. Linda J. Clark. As a staff singer at Grace, I sat directly facing a series of four stained glass windows, each depicting a scene from Christ's life - birth, baptism, death, and resurrection.
Each motet is a choral meditation on one of these windows, and is written for a choir of any size and composition that can be evenly divided into two voice parts.
