This piece, written in October 2011, follows on from Caelestis Ierusalem for women’s choir, composed in 2006, which took as its textual support the first two parts of the twenty-first chapter of Saint John’s magnificent Apocalypse.
In this hymn to hope, I wanted to integrate a children’s choir symbolizing the voice of a consoling and omniscient God. The work’s material is made up of three notes, the sound image of a soothing trinity, and a bouncy, joyful rhythmic element that takes up more and more space as the music unfolds. This element takes on its full meaning at the end of the piece when, taken up by the choir, it in turn becomes the symbol of the erasure of pain, sorrow, weeping and death by divine will.
