Stetit Angelus
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Stetit Angelus was commissioned in 2005 by the Indonesian choir Vox Angelorum and their director Henry Sutjipto for a choral competition in China. Dubra saw this as the long-awaited opportunity to set this marvellously evocative text from the Book of Revelation. There are many interesting effects here, such as the opening chord which contains both static and moving parts on the same pitches. Later in the work free-floating voices reflect the image of rising clouds of incense.
