Written in 2007, “Sanctus” was the first piece to be composed for Hagen’s larger work: amass. Beginning with two female soloists and a small section of women’s voices, the piece emerges quietly and sweetly, yet soon overflows into a bubbling and expectant texture that slowly grows into a strong and jubilant climax, ending with a contemplative and uncharacteristic “hosanna.”

 

Text

 

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus,
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis.

 

Translation:

Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God of Hosts.
Full are heaven and earth of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

 

Composer’s Notes

 

The composer prefers an even 3-part split among both the sopranos/altos and tenors/basses.
