Factum est silentium

author of text
derived from Antiphons for the Feast of St Michael, and from Psalm 148

Factum est silentium is an extended and dramatic treatment of the Michaelmas story of the archangel’s fight with the dragon. Mouton takes every opportunity to paint the story in vivid terms, with striking use of homophony in several places, as well as contrapuntal skill and very varied harmony for this period.

from notes by Stephen Rice © 2012

Factum est silentium est une longue et théâtrale évocation du combat opposant l’archange saint Michel au dragon. Mouton ne manque pas une occasion de peindre ce récit en termes vivants avec, en plusieurs endroits, un saisissant usage de l’homophonie, joint à un savant contrepoint et à une harmonie très variée pour l’époque.

Français: Hypérion

Factum est silentium ist eine ausgedehnte und dramatische Behandlung der Geschichte des Kampfes des Erzengels Michael mit dem Drachen. Mouton nimmt jede Gelegenheit wahr, die Geschichte plastisch darzustellen, wobei er an mehreren Stellen sehr wirkungsvoll mit einem homophonen Satz arbeitet, jedoch auch sein kontrapunktisches Geschick und eine für seine Zeit äußerst abwechslungsreiche Harmonik zum Ausdruck bringt.
