... and unto you I bless you, not for your sins, but for your ways; to keep on moving on... (2014)
for Large Ensemble
Debut large-scale work, structurally resembling a Shakespearian sonnet, AUY is a contemplation on life, death, and the after-life.
The first 8 tracks explores a reflection on key people, all lost, forgotten, or passed away, resolving in a chant to God himself.
Divided by a minute of silence, the 6 latter tracks show a renewed sense of self, and a rejoicing for life itself.
Composer: Christopher Ittoku
