In Memoriam of the victims and heros of the Afganastan and Iraq Wars
Lament and Chant - In Memoriam is dedicated to all those who have suffered as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The musical material of the piece is based on the Lux Aeterna (eternal light) chant from the Gregorian Requiem Mass. The Waltz is a mutation of the chant and the Lament is freely composed. The music moves through sadness and chaos, but ultimately, it is a testament to the triumph of eternity over tragedy.
