“It is a piece of great size (ca 72 min) for mixed choir and a saxophone quartet; it is a musical meditation on the theme of the names of 72 angels in the Bible in Hebrew. Every angel has its own special quality that it is representing, such as love, health, forgiveness and the quality is expressed in the part with its name. The composition is divided into two bigger parts and also into three on religious unity and sharing principle: two in one and three in one. The piece will end with an Amen meditation, which bases on the harmony and sound colours of higher sounds.”
- Lera Auerbach
