Musica Dei donum optimi

 
The inspiration for this piece came in the form of opposing triads being 'tuned into one harmony'. In the beginning the D & A triads in the upper voices over the G triad in the lower voices create dissonances which are finally resolved in A major. This A major section, based on the Latin Musica Dei donum words with a new melody, becomes the central part of an A-B-A form.
