Pulchra es

2018; SATBB
author of text
Songs of Songs 6: 3-4a

Pulchra es was written for the wedding of the composer’s son in October 2018. The simply distinctive downward sequence of its opening is subtly offset by foreshortening of the reiterations, and recurs after a brief canonic central episode, to complete a perfectly balanced and self-contained statement. Here, as elsewhere, the deployment of voices and consonant dignity of the music obliquely recall the sensibility of motets by Anton Bruckner (1824-1896).
