3 Motetter til Agnus Dei (1983)
Bestilt af københavns drengekor
1 Agnus Dei, 2 Qui tollis peccata mundi, 3 Dona nobis pacem
Chorus a cappella / Chorus plus 1 instrument
Agnus Dei – to the concluding text of the Christian Mass – consist of three different versions of my so-called infinity series, presented in an almost objective, sober form: simply diatonic in the first motet (´Lamb of God´) , moving and modulating in the second motet (´who takest away the sins of the world´) and dissonantly chromatic in the third (´grant us peace´).
The motets were written for the Copenhagen Boys Choir.
