Salve regina

1 October 1997
author of text
Marian Antiphon from Trinity until Advent

The main element of Salve regina is a three-part ostinato figure that pervades the work like a mantra. This overlaying of melodies and ostinatos paints a dreamy picture, broken only by the middle section with its more hymn-like response to the text ‘Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui’.

from notes by Rupert Gough © 2010

L’élément principal du Salve regina est une figure d’ostinato à trois parties qui imprègne l’œuvre, tel un mantra. Ces mélodies entremêlées d’ostinatos brossent un tableau onirique, que vient rompre la seule section centrale, avec sa réponse davantage hymnique aux mots «Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui».

Français: Hypérion

Das Hauptelement von Salve regina ist eine dreiteilige Ostinatofigur, die das Werk wie eine Gebetsformel durchzieht. Diese Überlagerung von Melodien und Ostinati malt ein verträumtes Bild, das nur vom Mittelteil mit seiner stärker hymnischen Erwiderung auf den Text „Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui“ unterbrochen wird.
