Iustorum animae
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Iustorum animae begins imitatively before rapidly adopting a much more homophonic mode of expression. The ‘torment of death’ is illustrated with some advanced dissonance which sounds rather more gorgeous than grating, before a short triple-time section gives way to a very static final few bars which represent the souls’ state of peace.
