Unde (soprano with shakuhachi)

by Deborah Kayser and Anne Norman (2000, this version: 2003)

Audio Sample

Performance by Deborah Kayser, Anne Norman from the CD On the wings of a butterfly

Work Overview

based on a short chant by Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)

Unde quocumque veninetes perrexerunt,
Velut cum gaudio celestis paradisi suscepte sunt, Quia in religione morum
Honorifice apparuerunt.

therefore, wherever they arrived in their wanderings there was a warm welcome as we shall receive in Paradise because through their devotion their great faith was apparent

This work has elements of improvisation. The length of shakuhachi, and therefore the key, is up to the tessatura of the singer.

Anne has also published a solo version for a singing shakuhachi performer under the title Wherever The Go
