Description:
Program note (English): Fulgura Frango is the inscription found on many church bells in Europe from the Medieval times right up until the end of the 19th century. Translated, it means 'I break the lightning', and shows the faith of the bell ringers and the church in the protective power of the ringing of the bells in times of emergency - to ward off electrical storms and aggressive attacks, to name a few. Many a bell ringer met his end while performing his duty during lightning strikes to the church tower. Fragments of the pitch cycles of the bell ringers of England provided rich sources for melodic ideas, which fit in with the overall theme of the work. The trumpet, perhaps overly clear by now, is the musical metaphor for the tragic hero figure, pitting himself against 'the elements', for the greater good. A 'singing highway', heard on a journey in New Mexico, was an important inspiration for the melody and rhythms used in the chorale section. - CHRISTINA VIOLA OOREBEEK
