LUX VIVENS COVER JPG_Page_1Lux vivens, for treble ensemble (SSAA).  based on a chant by Hildegard von Bingen (2014)

Program Note: Lux vivens was composed in 2014 as incidental music to an animation project conceived by musicologist Margot Fassler and realized by digital artist Christian Jara about the Cosmic Egg by  Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1197). Originally created with an aleatoric design, and intended as a representation of angelic cacophony in the heavens, Lux vivens was later engraved for concert performance.  Its central material derives from the initial strains of Hildegard’s original chant .

Text: O gloriosissimi lux vivens angeli. Translation: O glorious angels and living light!

Duration: Approximately 7 mins.
