Ubi caritas

composer
author of text
Antiphon during the Washing of the Feet and Vespers on Maundy Thursday

 
The first piece Ola Gjeilo encountered in his school choir in Norway was Maurice Duruflé’s 1960 setting of Ubi caritas, which made a lasting impression—as he put it, ‘the perfect a cappella piece’. Like Duruflé, Gjeilo is strongly influenced by plainsong, although, as he explains, ‘while Duruflé used an existing, traditional chant … I used chant more as a general inspiration, while also echoing the form and dynamic range of his incomparable setting of the text’.
