Programme Note
John Corigliano Amen (1994)
Composer Note:
Scored for antiphonal double chorus, the word “Amen” is set in an alternating series of plagal (IV-I) cadences that go through the entire circle of fifths three times. As they journey, they become more and more passionate, until, after a climax, they return to the contemplative mood of the opening.
— John Corigliano
