Dum medium silentium
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Dum medium silentium was written in response to a commission from Vocal Ensemble Calycanthus and Pietro Ferrario in 2008. Miškinis creates a hypnotic atmosphere, with the juxtaposition of repetitive rhythmic fragments and sustained lines against the pulse, broken occasionally by a homophonic outburst. This rather lyrical minimalism proves very effective for this setting of the Introit for Sunday within the Octave of Christmas.
