Program Notes

Premiere: March 2002, Eastman Chorale (Rochester, NY)

This setting of the Ave Verum Corpus was the first in a set of didactic motets for treble voices. In this and the other two motets, Christus factus est and O vos omnes, I limited myself strictly with respect to the number of voices. In the Ave Verum Corpus, a placid line rises over a static, still drone.
