Messe pour ma mère
Messe pour ma mère is a work in progress. Written in memory of my mother, Josephine Scott, the piece is a simple act of remembrance, pure in spirit and form. The piece uses the words of the Eucharist mass.
The Kyrie (Lord have mercy), is the opening movement; a cry for pity. The form is a triptych, inspired from the shape of the words:
“Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord Have Mercy”
I have taken the pattern of 3 phrases and used this as a musical structure. Each verse is repeated three times.
