I am quite happy to not only toot my own horn about my own music, but to also let everyone know of good music written by another. Jeremiah Joseph is a composition major at Houston Baptist University, and if this excerpt is any indication of the quality of the whole, then his new monodrama Alyce is very cool indeed.

This recording is sung by Ashley Brooks who has the following to say:

Recently, Jeremiah Joseph asked me if I would be available to sing excerpts from his monodrama, “Alyce” for a composers forum at HBU. I was so thrilled to do it, since I have known Jeremy for a long time and am so proud of the work that he is doing.

I had an extraordinary experience singing these pieces and can not wait to perform the monodrama in its entirety sometime in the near future. You can find the recordings of that performance at www.myspace.com/jeremiahjosephmusic

The piece is scored for voice, piano, flute and double bass- here we are without a bass, but it worked out just fine. The first excerpt is “Such a Pretty Picture” which is followed by “What a Night”. Ben Sieben plays piano and Nathan Hailey plays flute. Please listen and enjoy. If you like it, share it!!! Thanks!

I have to agree, Ashley, great stuff!
