Alpha and Omega

Revelation 21: 1-6a
mixed choir (SSSAATTBB) a cappella
Composition dramatique, puissante, sur un texte culte. Elle débute sur un passage homophone pour tout le chœur (divisi), lequel se distingue par de larges et lentes gradations dynamiques et des silences. Les passages polyphoniques alternent avec d’autres, homophones ; les voix supérieures passent alors à une autre partie plus tranquille dans laquelle les parties graves ne font que bourdonner, avant qu’un fortissimo, repris du début, n'achève l’œuvre.

Description

Setting of Revelation 21: 1–6a commisioned by Soli Deo Gloria with support from Crossway Bibles and from the University of Chicago, and premiered in June 2011 by the University of Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel Choir and Motet Choir. 
A dramatic and powerful setting of an iconic text, this work opens with a homophonic passage for full choir (divisi) with wide, slow dynamic gradations and silences. Polyphonic sections alternate with further homophony; upper voices then usher in a very soft pasage over lower voice drones before a fortissimo ending derived from the work's beginning.
