Colimaçon

composer
1999

 
The title is French for the spiral form of a snail’s shell and is most commonly found in the form escalier en colimaçon, meaning a spiral staircase. Having first come across the expression in the work of Jacques Prévert, the word obviously remained in my subconscious and I was reminded of its meaning when composing Colimaçon for David Titterington in 1999, with its meandering circular form. Gratias tibi evolved as a choral ‘transcription’ of this work at a later date, the voice of the organ fragmented into a multitude of its human counterparts.
