See, our Saviour!

Motet for a capella choir

Basilica di Santa Sofia by Marco Sacchi

A single-movement adoration of thanksgiving in the style of a beautiful flowing medieval chant.

Voici le Sauveur!

Notes:

I remember having composed this short motet for four voices under a single inspiration stretching until late at night. The computer-generated sounds weren’t first-rate, but my mind could project the cathedral, with its low candelabras and its majestic ceiling, containing the echo of these solemn tones. This piece was performed once at my assembly at Christmas; a friend sang the soprano part, my mother the alto part, and I the bass.
