Per Nørgård Consolazione: Flos ut Rosa (2002)
PER NØRGÅRD: CONSOLAZIONE (2002) – for harp solo
The concept of Mary has a depth that transcends all religious persuasions. All over the earth symbols of the gentle and maternal are known. But the word ´Maria´ is also associated - in sound - with the Latin word for the sea, mare, and she thus become the Star of the Sea, Maris Stella.

In my Thirds Symphony the Maria motif is used in a hymn section in the second, and last, part of the work. The choral song “Flos ut rosa floruit” was composed directly in the context of the symphony, and the melody had a ´stamina´ that carried it over into many later vocal and choral compositions, for instance the “Concerto for Harp No. 2 – through thorns” (2003) and the present Consolazione for harp solo , both works dedicated to Tine Rehling.
