Justus ut palma florebit—Occupy the Land—Occupo is a modern motet for SATB chorus, soprano solo, and piano dedicated to the stewardship of creation. The University of Notre Dame Chorale, Alexander Blachly, conductor, commissioned this new motet with generous funding support from Susan and Conn Rusche and a 2015-2016 Individual Artist Grant for Music Composition from the Indiana Arts Commission.
