Default New Composition-Requiem for Lin

I wrote this a few years ago on the passing of my step-mother, with whom I was very close. The A part is the loss, grief, and resolve, and the B part is the celebration of life. Stay with the audio for final phrase which speaks to the mystery of it all.

The video is the B part of the piece, but you can hear the whole piece here:

I hope you give it a look/listen, and as always any comments are appreciated!
Score is available if anyone wants to give it a go!
Thanks,
Peter

Thanks for sharing and nice job. A little mystical, open ended. Did something similar in memory of my mother.

Thanks rick-slo! Yes, open-ended, suspended, a nod to the infinite mystery.
I appreciate your comment.
