Satan's Fall is an oratorio for choir and orchestra based on Books V and VI of John Milton's Paradise Lost. It premiered on 2020-02-07 at the Roxian Theatre in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, featuring the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh.

“My piece,” Copeland says, “is about the three days of battle that result, which waxes and wanes very colorfully and violently and aggressively. To tell the story of this battle, you need 80 men and women on stage singing heavy metal.”
