Terra sine aqua:
Expandi manus meas ad te
anima mea sicut terra sine aqua tibi

My hands reach out for you
my soul without you is like earth without water.

Meine Seele ist ohne dich wie Erde ohne Wasser

Very cool. I happen to love the music of Lassus — I make my renaissance counterpoint students learn and perform as many of his 2- and 3-part motets as time allows when I teach that class — so I enjoy that aspect of this work, but I also really enjoy your free-associative synth sounds that you blend into your texture, which makes me think a little of Stanley Kubrik...

This is very creatively done! Congratulations!

Maybe a teeny bit too much of a clash for my taste, but it is inspirational as to what can - still - be done in music. Love the picture! Thanks!
