Description:
Inside a large church or cathedral the different shadings of light coming in from windows is exuberant, but the shifting of incoming light when a cloud hides the sun will also change the atmosphere. There are certain spaces where there is virtually no light. This was an interesting musical idea and so I decided for all parts as well as within each part, to juxtapose the characters of different church modes: the Doric, Lydian, Mixolydian and Ionic. The hexatonic and octatonic scales have been sparingly used to create dissonant passages. Hence the overall title: ‘Light and the half light.”
