MISSA BREVIS, Brussels, Rome
In situ multimedia creation. SACRED MUSIC AND LIGHT INSTALLATION Brussels' Cathedral and Conservatory, Festival Grande Musica in Chiesa, Rome
Written for four voices, the organ and a string septet, Chris Christoffels’ Missa Brevis (as opposed to Missa Solemnis, which is longer and more exalted), bursts with energy and inventiveness, and displays Chris’ special interest in transcendence. The number four, says Chris, plays a fundamental role in its structure and imagery – starting with the four movements (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus and Agnus Dei), echoed by the four voices, and the evocation of the seasons, the elements, the points of the compass, the creatures of the Apocalypse. Those four movements are also visualised by four lighted cubes.
