Product details

The plainsong Veni Creator Spiritus and the Dunstable motet of the same title as this piece, are used as the starting points for an exploration of a process of "built-in resonance".

A canon has always been an "echo device", but in this piece the canonic voices proceed at fluctuating speeds, so that the time relationship between the voices is constantly shifting.

Throughout the piece, a single line is used, but decorated and smudged outwards in such a way that the resulting sound can be directionized and shaped.

Pages: 1 score (18p. -- A4 (landscape))

Difficulty: Advanced

Duration: 11 min.

Dedication note: For Phyllida

First performance 13 Sep 72. Gaudeamus International Music Week, the Netherlands

Words are the hymn 'Veni Sancte Spiritus'.
