for mixed choir a cappella (SSAATTBB)
composed in January - February 2012
Lux Aeterna, for eight-part mixed choir a cappella, is dedicated to my mother, Amelia, and to my
father, Giorgio. In this piece I tried to blend a simple melodic idea that could be a thousand years
old - descending and ascending scales - with harmonic textures that are much more complex and
modern: all this within a rather contrapunctal environment. There are slight but frequent changes
of the tonal center; it never ends at a clear point; this shall give to the listener a hypnotic effect.

The final chord is a complete D mixolydian scale where the highest note of the male voices (G =
Giorgio) and the lowest of the female voices (A = Amelia) symbolize the names of my parents lying
next to each other in the middle of this suspended context - the mixolydian mode does not have a
tonal stability and this emphasize the never-ending factor.

Lux Aeterna was premiered by De Angelis Vocal Ensemble, Matthew Gray, conductor, in October
2012 at their Modern Masters concert.
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine,
Let eternal light shine on them, Lord
cum sanctis tuis in aeternum,
as with Your saints in eternity,
quia pius es.
because You are merciful.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
et lux perpetua luceat eis,
and let perpetual light shine on them,
cum sanctis tuis in aeternum,
as with Your saints in eternity,
quia pius es.
because You are merciful.
