First snow

With your choir you can tell a sweet and melancholic experience: the need for escape, the need to surrender, the loss of the self in the contemplation of the Winter.

Nunc dimittis

My music wants to tell the deepness and the force of the prayer of Simeon, a righteous and devout man, when he saw the child Jesus into the Temple of Jerusalem.

O Sapientia

The first of the seven major antiphons of Advent, "O Sapientia", recognizes in Jesus the impersonation of wisdom and therefore invokes his arrival in history.

O magnum mysterium

The mystery of an infinite God who becomes so small that he finds refuge in the womb of a young woman, the joy of discovering that Heaven has come to dwell, in silence, on earth: all this is O magnum mysterium.

Ecce Rex

This antiphon inaugurates the Novena of Christmas and presents Jesus as a King who carries on himself the yoke of our slavery. This is my chorus version.

O Adonai

O Adonai ("O Lord") is the second of the major antiphons of Advent, on whose text I wrote this piece for treble choir. Continuing the journey begun with O Sapientia, Christ is referred to the election of the Jewish people through the figure of Moses, who was the first dux ("leader") of Israel.

Ave Maria

 This is my version for female choir of the most famous prayer dedicated to the Holy Virgin Mary. I wanted to communicate all the hope of the people who trust the maternal love of Mary with a romantic and sweet music, that presents also moments of force.

Descendit de cælis

 To descend from the heavens means to abandon eternity and to encounter space-time. According to the Christian faith this is what the Son of God did "propter nos homines et nostram salutem": for us men and our salvation. My piece tries to tell this unspeakable moment.
