Jonathan David, composer

Composer Jonathan David’s music has been
described as “fierce,” “ecstatic,” “Romantic,” “sophisticated,” and “accessible.” His choral catalog balances the sacred and the secular, accompanied and a cappella, with settings of texts from melancholy to mischievous.

The wonderful Atlanta Young Singers of Callanwolde, Music Director Paige Mathis, have commissioned a new work from me for the intriguing combination of Treble Chorus, TTBB Soloists, Double Bass, and Percussion. The "dragon" text, by David Hopes, was also commissioned. Scheduled premiere: Atlanta, GA, May, 2017.

“I have conducted this piece with two ensembles now… In each case, our experiences with it were filled with wonder. Jonathan David’s Stabat Mater deserves a wide performance life and a recognized place within this ancient and hallowed choral genre.”
