Misc. Comments

An old student piece, one of many I have absolutely no memory of writing (perhaps because of the atonal style we were forced to use in composition class at Rutgers in those days). To give you an idea of the assignments, we were given a set of intervals to use and then told things like 1) no more than 3 occurrences of the same interval in succession, 2) one high point and low point, 3) avoid tonal implications and literal sequences, 4) use a variety of rhythmic durations with no more than 3 rhythms in succession, 4) include rests, 5) exploit dynamics, etc. I don't recall what the parameters for this assignment were.

As for the anonymous chant text (the plainsong of which is not used in the piece) - The antiphon, Ave Regina Caelorum, is sung as the concluding antiphon in the The Liturgy of the Hours from the Presentation of the Lord until Holy Thursday. It was originally sung for None for the Feast of the Assumption. The author is unknown. The earliest plainchant manuscript stems from the twelfth century. There are slightly variant versions.
