Felix namque es …

August 2007; mixed voices, unaccompanied; composed during and for the Salzburg Sacred Music Week
author of text
Offertory at Saturday Mass in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary from Christmas to the Purification

For several years Dubra has given composition masterclasses at the Salzburg Sacred Music week. There is a tradition that participants write a short piece during the week of the festival for the final concert and in 2007 Dubra produced the brief motet Felix namque es …. In that year the prerequisite was to set a Marian text, although at the peak of this simple homophonic work it is the words ‘Jesus Christus Deus noster’ (‘Jesus Christ our God’) that Dubra chooses to venerate.

Pendant plusieurs années, Dubra a donné des cours de composition dans le cadre de la semaine de musique sacrée de Salzbourg. Il est de tradition que les participants écrivent une courte pièce au cours de la semaine du festival pour le concert final et, en 2007, Dubra a composé le court motet Felix namque es …. Cette année-là, la condition préalable était de mettre en musique un texte marial, mais au sommet de cette œuvre homophonique simple, ce sont les mots «Jesus Christus Deus noster» («Jésus-Christ notre Dieu») que Dubra choisit de vénérer.

Seit mehreren Jahren gibt Dubra Meisterklassen in Komposition während der „Werkwochen für Kirchenmusik“ in Salzburg. Dort besteht eine Tradition, dass Teilnehmer in der Festspielwoche ein kurzes Stück für das Schlusskonzert schreiben, und 2007 produzierte Dubra die kurze Motette Felix namque es …. In diesem Jahr war die Bedingung, einen marianischen Text zu vertonen, obwohl Dubra als Höhepunkt seines schlichten homophonen Werks die Verehrung der Worte „Jesus Christus Deus noster“ („Jesus Christus Unser Gott“) wählt.
