My dear Life

Another collabotarion with Charles Anthony Silvestri


Dear choir directors!

I am thrilled to announce my second collaboration with Charles Anthony Silvestri.

Together, we have brought to life an exciting new piece for mixed choir and string quartet, which we've named My dear Life.

The composition explores the power of life, revealing its warm light to someone who initially found it challenging to endure. As the individual admits his misconception, he begins to discover the true meaning of life: giving and receiving love in all circumstances.

This piece serves as a tribute to life, akin to a tender kiss emerging silently from the depths of the soul. Tony Silvestri has composed a moving and wonderful poem that enriches every note I have written.

If you would like your choir to have the opportunity to perform it or if you simply desire more details, please do not hesitate to contact me at We can discuss and make arrangements.

I am eager to collaborate with you!

Description of the work

Voicing: SATB (without divisi), accompained by a string quartet

Duration: about 5'45''

Difficulty: medium-advanced

Text by Charles Anthony Silvestri

My life had always felt less than whole,

And I longed for magic, mystery, meaning.

Time has worn the edges of my spirit,

Softened my pain,

Leaving my heart open.


Sorrow had blinded me

To all the blessings

Life had given me!


Think of the time I have wasted

Listening to shadows,

Sitting in the darkness

Waiting for light!


Now I can see:

Darkness and light, 

Sorrow and joy

Are but footsteps on the journey;


For love is the foundation,

Life's greatest treasure.

Love is the journey we walk together,

Hand in hand, and heart to heart.

To love another and be loved in return

Is life's greatest blessing!


Giving, receiving 

Love, life, hope, and laughter,

Thankful for my life, my breath,

For my joy, for my shadows, for my pain,

For my heart, for my blessings,

For the wisdom to always be

Thankful for Life!


I'm thankful for my dear Life!
