Commissioned by improvising percussionist Jerry Granelli, this 5-movement concerto features choral music by composer Peter Togni. Texts are from Tibetan Buddist Chögyam Trungpa’s poetry, as well as Malcolm X and the Roman Catholic Liturgy, Together, Granelli and Togni have managed to build a composition that combines Jerry’s use of specific rhythmic patterns with Peter- Anthony’s imagination and skill as a choral composer. The result is a uniting of the two author's spiritual practices; Granelli’s Tibetan Buddhist practice and Togni’s Catholic beliefs. This concerto is an ecumenical journey towards nonaggression.
