Ubi Caritas : for SATB choir / Joseph Twist.

Library shelf no. 782.55525/TWI 5 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

"Where charity and love are, God is there." A commemoration of Jesus Christ for Holy Thursday, for me, the Ubi Caritas has a few significant dimensions; the warmth of Christ's love, the adoration and mystery of the holy spirit, and the idea of an 'inclusive, universal' celebration. Accordingly, my Ubi Caritas reflects this through contrasts in harmonic language, at times chromatic or mysterious, at other times diatonic or pentatonic, reflecting Christ's love, as well as the influence of modal harmony from Eastern Europe and Africa. Similarly, contrasts in rhythm and texture are incorporated. The calm, sparse music which bookends the work is countered with rhythmic, syncopated music in a kind of ritualistic exultation.
