Program Notes

The first time I sang in a choir was in high school; I went to a music high school in Norway, and choir was obligatory. I loved it from the very first rehearsal, and the first piece we read through was Maurice Duruflé’s Ubi Caritas. It will always be one of my favorite choral works of all time; to me, it’s the perfect a-cappella piece. So when I set the same text myself a few years later, it was inevitable that the Duruflé would influence it, and it did. While Duruflé used an existing, traditional chant in his piece, I used chant more as a general inspiration, while also echoing the form and dynamic range of his incomparable setting of the text.

This piece is an adaptation on the original choral parts from Ola Gjeilo’s piece. Written in four-part flex arrangement, this piece gives any ensemble the opportunity to enjoy this piece.
