Hello and welcome to my website

Thank you very much for showing interest in my undertakings and I invite you to browse through the various sections at your leisure.

As a start, I was born in Adelaide, South Australia, later graduated with my music degrees at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide and shortly afterwards moved to Switzerland.

Years later, in 2009, I unexpectedly began composing, writing song texts and poetry and thanks to many supportive colleagues have since been able to have my works performed, recorded, produced, published and distributed.

A collection of works can also be found online, via CD, sheet music or on YouTube with Susannah Snow’s Channel.

Hoping you enjoy my music,

Susannah Snow

Here I share with you a new music video in Portuguese, O Mundo inspired by the beautiful poem of Manuel Santos.

With this video I am also trying to collect funds to help the children of São Tomé and Príncipe, who are also desperately needing assistance in these difficult times and so, after watching the video, if you would be so kind as to be able to make a donation with the bank details provided in the accompanying text of the video, that would be so greatly appreciated and all proceeds would then be donated to help the children of the orphanage in São Tomé e Príncipe: „Casa dos Pequeninos em São Tomé e Príncipe acolhe crianças abandonadas“.

The poet Manuel Santos is also the residing Bishop of the Diocese of São Tomé e Príncipe, His Excellency the Most Reverend Bishop D. Manuel António Mendes dos Santos who I had the privilege to meet on a couple of occasions on pilgrimages between Fatima to Santiago de Compostela. 

I am also grateful that Bruno von Nünlist sings as baritone and that I have been able to show the painting of Vittoria Theresia Mozzi of St. Michael, Angel of Portugal and Angel of Peace with the three blessed shepherd children of Fatima throughout the video.

Thank you so much for any  help!

O MUNDO
from the collection of poems
“Aqui Onde Estou Os Sonhos São Verdes“
written by Manuel Santos
on August the 15th, 2013
 
O MUNDO
O mundo é grande
e cabe nas mãos de uma criança
salta, pula, dança
nas mãos de uma criança

Yours sincerely, Susannah Snow

NEW PUBLICATION in 2020

The Angel of Peace

 for voice and piano

I am thrilled to be able to announce the first sheet music publication of one of my vocal compositions – „The Angel of Peace“ (2016) – which was inspired by the apparitions of the Archangel St. Michael, the Angel of Portugal at Fatima in 1916 to the three shepherd children Lúcia dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

Further I am most deeply honoured to have been permitted to dedicate this song to 

H.R.H. Dom Duarte Pio de Bragança, Duke of Bragança, Head of the Portuguese Royal House.

This 16 page book was published by Emanomusic and the cover displays a wonderful painting by the Swiss artist Vittoria Theresia Mozzi who studied the text and history of the apparitions at Fatima and then created this moving work of art of the Angel of Peace together with Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco.

The photo of this painting was taken by Michael Dellefant, the graphic layout designed with Avarel Studios and I programmed the music score with the Sibelius Ultimate 2020 Music Programme.

I am also grateful that this publication is now available at Musik Hug Zürich with Order Number 80.EMD 012-3 at CHF19.- and I am endeavoured to donate proceeds to children’s charities and so thank you very much for your support.

Released in summer 2020:

Paul Klee’s „Double Tent“ 1923, 114 has inspired 50’ of music for soprano and piano. 

I have dedicated this song cycle to Angela Rosengart, Martina Kral and Carmela Konrad, in gratitude for their support and collaboration, especially in the year of 2017 when this work was created and in 2018 when it was recorded.

Please visit The Rosengart Collection Museum, Lucerne where Paul Klee’s masterpiece can be found at its home in the Klee Room. 

“Twin Tents” has been admitted to the Music Archive in the Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern and is available at Musik Hug Zurich and various other outlets. More about this project can be found under ArtMusic.
