During the recent events of gun violence, I felt compelled to write the Procession in D Minor music collection for orchestra/choir, wind ensemble/choir, and 4 piano quartet. I had just finished writing Procession D Minor (for Orchestra and SATBB Choir) and decided to include it on this album. Procession in D Minor (for Orchestra and SATBB Choir) was composed to honor those victims of gun violence. As the title implies, it is like a funeral procession. Although there is an undeniable sadness to it, that sadness is musically framed with boldness and courageousness, building continuously to its climactic end symbolizing our honor and tribute to the fallen, and that their memories and our love for them will never be forgotten.

This cinematic song builds dramatically with each instrumental layer added throughout the song's journey for a cinematic climactic ending. The first layer begins with percussion. The second layer consists of violins, violas, and bass instruments. Third layer adds trumpets and horns 1, 2, 3. Fourth layer adds choir singing epic ahs. Fifth layer adds woodwinds and violins with new melody motif. Sixh layer adds haunting orchestral tubular chimes. Seventh layer adds secondary melodic motif in counterpoint to first melody. Eighth layer adds trumpets, horns, and choir singing/playing 3rd melodic motif in counterpoint to the first and second melodic motifs taking piece for a climactic end.

This song is the closing song on Tito Abeleda's album Mourning in the Rain released on 9/11/2019.
