Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The piece was commissioned by the municipality of the Hungarian town, Debrecen and was premiered by the Kodály Choir at the opening concert of the Béla Bartók 28th International Choir Competition and Festival. The composition’s text is based on the word, Alleluja and selected verses from the Psalms. The Alleluja sections give the opportunity of using the vowels as means of creating harmonic and timbral process, while the sections using Psalm verses are more dramatic standing in a certain kind of contrast with the more static and contemplative parts of the piece.
