Missa Victimae Paschali

Missa Victimae (2009) is a Missa Brevis setting (without Kyrie) for chorus and organ. While it was written for liturgical use, it can also be performed as a concert piece. The work uses the opening phrase of the familiar Victimae Paschali chant as a motive throughout all three movements. When the motive is present, it is sometimes prominent in the vocal line, other times it is less conspicuous in the organ part.
