for a cappella choir
Llum (Light) is an invitation to take a journey inward, to travel to the immense space which is, precisely, what makes us human, to that silent place which exists within us, to the deep wellspring that is the birthplace of everything, to the bright sapling of Peace; to the infinite, which announces the Mystery; to the gift of Life, Peace and Love. The texts which accompany each of the seven stages of this inner pilgrimage were written by my friend Vicenç Santamaria, a monk from the monastery of Monserrat. The words have been set to music for a variety of choral formations - mixed choir, female voice choir, double choir -, and for different soloists. All the pieces are composed to be sung a cappella, and in Luminous Crumbs crotales and bar chimes have been added.
