Program Note

 

Completed October 18, 2009 in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, this piece was written in homage to Messiaen's motet on the same text. As such, it's thorny, dissonant, and complex - a perfect musical pairing for this text.

 

 The piece is a rewarding challenge for advanced amateur and professional choirs alike and makes a profound impact in a liturgical context, or as a featured concert piece.
