The four interludes that comprise ...and Peter went out, and wept bitterly were composed to be interpolated at specific times during a performance of Orlando di Lasso's masterwork Lagrime di San Pietro. Each interlude functions as a meditation on the preceeding movements of Lasso's work.
There are natural divisions in Lasso's work and interpolating a sympathetic yet contrasting sound world at these key points in the work possibly allows for a broadening the audience's meditative experience. Much of the musical material used in the interludes is drawn from the Lasso's Lagrime as well as from Gregorian chants connected with Passiontide and Easter. My aim with these interludes is to allow for meditation upon a meditation - to provide space for personal contemplation in an otherwise close emotional environment. The interludes may also be performed as a continuous work without Lasso's Lagrime.
