Benedic anima mea Domino

1994; SSATBB
author of text
Psalm 102: 1-5, 20-22

The compact six-part Benedic anima mea Domino re-invents medieval practice to vivid effect, making much of the organum flavour achieved by piling fifths and octave ‘overtones’ above the ‘fundamental’ notes of plainchant. Alternation of the three upper and three lower parts is balanced by exuberant passages for all six, just as the fluid contours of plainchant are tempered by a rhythmic energy evoking secular medieval consort music for instruments.
