Duration 6:09 min
For female and male vocal soloists, SATB choir, string quartet, harp, and piano.
This work uses three texts: Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore; La courbe by Paul Eluard; and O Ecclesia by Hildegard.
It is a reworking of a much earlier setting from 1992 of these texts.
The work combines the fragility of a single note, sung or played, with sudden surges of textures in counterpoint. Informed by the use of multiple texts and layers found in 13th century isorhythmic motets, each exposed part adds to its sense of intimacy.
Unending Love… can be performed with its companion piece: Remember.
A vocal score voices and piano is also available.
