Victimae paschali laudes, opus 65 : from the Liber Usualis, soprano or mezzo-soprano and piano / arranged by Jacqui Rutten.
Library shelf no. 783.66525/RUT 2 [Available for loan]
The piece is from the Liber Usualis and tells of the risen Lord
and is sung on Easter Sunday. I was thinking of the Easter Sunday
uprising in Ireland which led to irish independence when first
considering setting the piece.
I recently performed this as a piece of solo chant for a lunchtime concert at St. Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne. I love the piece and have been granted a composing residency in May 2015 at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre Ireland to compose a piece called Memorial for soprano and orchestra, based on this sequence and my own improvisations as nature. I thought I would do a voice and piano arrangement first to get to know the piece really well.
Instrumentation: Soprano (or mezzo-soprano) and piano.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — ornamentation
