Winner of the 2004 Emerging Composer Competition awarded by the Yale Glee Club, this work is a setting of the Latin antiphon by Hildegard von Bingen. Alternating between joy and reflection, this buoyant work will be a concert showpiece.
Laus Trinitati, que sonus et vita
ac creatrix omnium in vita ipsorum est,
et que laus angelice turbe
et mirus splendor archanorum,
que hominibus ignota sunt, est,
et que in omnibus vita est.
Praise to the Trinity—the sound and life
and creativity of all within their life,
the praise of the angelic host
and wondrous, brilliant splendor hid,
unknown to human minds, it is,
and life within all things.
