Laudate Dominum
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Laudate Dominum is a predominantly Renaissance-influenced work where the seven-voice writing is infused with imitative and quasi-imitative polyphony. The motet possesses a grandeur that is achieved by underpinning the vigorous polyphony with gently old-fashioned dissonances whose function is to create a large acoustical effect from within the ensemble rather than relying upon the architecture of a large performance space to create a similar effect.
