Work no. 161
I know precisely what the piece is about, but it is one of those cases where the inspiration is too personal to share, so I can't talk about it. What I can say is that this is another in a series of pieces preoccupied with canons and mirror images. The alto and tenor parts are sung twice. In the second half of the piece they form a kind of a mirror, and the soprano part from the first half becomes the bass part of the second. The sopranos do not get any music to sing in the second half, though. The reflection remains, but the original has disappeared.
