A Soldier's Prayer was composed in 2004 as an assignment for my studies as music composition major at West Valley Community College in Saratoga,
California. It's first performance was given by fellow music major and
vocalist, Briana Donahue, as I accompanied her on Piano in the recital
hall of the College's music building on December 17th, 2004. Since the
piece's first performance, I developed it a bit further and gave it its
first performance in it's newly developed form on June 5th, 2008. For
that performance, the voice of Gabriella Zurzolo joined forces with my
accompaniment on Piano, all in the great hall of the Ruppersdorf
Wasserschloss in Ruppersdorf/ Herrnhut, Germany.
Performance Time: 6min.
