SKU: A0.934089

Composed by Ong Wei Shen Keane. Contemporary,Sacred. Octavo. 8 pages. Ong Wei Shen Keane #3110367. Published by Ong Wei Shen Keane (A0.934089).

Absolve Domine (Forgive, O Lord) was inspired by a trip to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Krakow, Poland. Its Latin text comes from the liturgy of the Requiem and the piece is dedicated to the Poles who suffered and had died in the concentration camps of World War II, and is a remembrance for their family members who may still be living today. The melody is underlined by a steady cadence of notes representative of the marching footsteps of the prisoners. It is an entreaty to the Lord to forgive and bless the souls of the departed. While the rhythms are easy to catch, much vocal technique is expected as there needs to be a stark contrast to the vocal marcato marches and the lyrical legato melody. At at duration of approximately 4:10 minutes, this piece is suitable as a concert or funeral selection. The attached audio file is a midi version of the composition.
