Salve regina


In his organ works, Naji Hakim often draws his thematic material from the gregorian chant, treasures of the Roman Catholic Church, situated in the spirit of Vatican II. This paraphrase of the antiphon to the virgin, Salve Regina, is based on the plainsong theme (solemn tone). The gregorian line is unchanged; it evolves slowly above an expressive harmony. The text of the prayer is underlined by the meditative, soft and peaceful character.

World premiere performed by Naji Hakim, Liebfrauenmünster, Ingolstadt, Germany, 1st August 2004.
