Hi Christopher
I would like to perform "Hymn Do Trojcy Swietej" in Santa Barbara, with orchestra. Is this beautiful piece published separately?


Christopher Tin responded on 02/07/2017
A

It could be separated out from the main suite, yes. EAM/DC handles the rentals, so perhaps reach out to them? Either they'll be able to print it separately, or they'll reach out to me for revised standalone score and parts.

Q

Where did the repeating theme from Lacrymosa / interspersed in Calling All Dawns come from? What made you put it into so many of your songs?


Christopher Tin responded on 02/04/2017
A

It originated with a string quartet I wrote as a graduate student at the Royal College of Music (Lacrymosa), which several years later I repurposed for a short film score (for a Luxembourgian film called 'The Lodge'). That piece then got re-recorded for Calling All Dawns as 'Lux Aeterna', and I decided I liked the motif so much, and it was so harmonically flexible, that I could use it as a connecting device throughout CAD. Thanks for asking!

Could you please visit Melbourne, Australia? My boyfriend has said he will no go to any other artist's concert except yours, and he's serious about it! He even declined tickets to Hans Zimmer, as he said the student (you) became better than the teacher.

Thanks! And I'm sure Hans puts on a pretty good show. :) I unfortunately don't have any plans to visit Australia (except as a tourist), but hopefully I can get something arranged sometime soon.

Hi! If you're in North America, the contact is EAM/Schott in New York. If you're outside of North America, the contact is David Fisher at Faber. Contact info for both is on my site. Thanks!

Have you considered making a song in a native american language?

I have! Yupik actually. It just didn't work out, sadly.

Q

When will you next be performing in the UK (or perhaps the Netherlands)? I've just discovered your music and so sad I missed your concert at Cadogen Hall during the summer.

Many thanks.

Hi! Actually this coming summer... I'll be at a festival in the UK in the summer. So keep an eye out for an announcement!
