Quo Vadis?


Quo Vadis?

The latin phrase “where are you going” has religious undertones, appearing in the apocryphal Acts of Peter. However, here it has a more general interpretation. This piece was written early in the Covid pandemic when the uncertainty of the situation was becoming clear. Thus, it should be taken as asking more generally “where are we all going?”. Correspondingly, the mood is contemplative and searching, never reaching a real answer.


Quo Vadis?

A very quiet piece for string quartet with 2 violas instead of 2 violins. This was a submission for the Kaleidoscope competition. It didn’t win, but I still like it.

Available as open source from the UCLA Music Library.


Quo Vadis?

This is a version for recorders SATB.


Quo Vadis (sextet version)?

This is a version for recorders SATBGC, which uses the same SATB voices as the quartet, but with added Great and Contra.
