The composer that I chose to write about is Patricia Van Ness. She’s a violinist, poet, and an American composer. She was born June 25, 1951 in America and now lives in Cambridge Massachusetts. She’s the staff composer for First Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has also been an invited lecturer on her music at the Harvard University Department of Music and at Boston University’s Core Curriculum Program. The style music that Patricia makes is Medieval and Renaissance themed music. In the 1960’s she began to use her first and primary instrument the violin and her love for singing developed over time. Her love for music started with modern orchestra music and transferred into a more Renaissance themed music. There is a total of 65 songs that Patricia has composed or helped to compose.The first song that I picked is Sparrow, Sparrow of the Evening. It is an english song and could not find out the voice parts for this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_aHq66fLdM The reason that i picked this song is because when i was looking up Patricia I saw this a lot it is one of her more famous pieces. Another reason that I picked this song is because it is one of my favorite piece by Patricia that I have heard and I think that she did a very good job. Even though the song is mostly just a group of people who are singing with no words I think the piece is really beautiful. You can find this piece on the album of Glorious the Song by the Harvard University Choir released in 2015 along with 38 different pieces by many different composers. Overall this song is a pretty slow with a lot of notes that are carried out for a long time to make a really pretty sound of music. I would consider the mood of this song to a happy mood because there are lots of beautiful voices and sounds in this piece.The song that i chose to do is called a Acapella song which means that this song has no instruments in it and that it is completely and only voices.
