Missa Unitatis By Antony Pitts

Ships in 3-5 business days.
The first new mass setting to have been commissioned by the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (founded in 's-Hertogenbosch in 1318) in almost 500 years, and as such resonates strongly with the... More > sound, aesthetic, and intention of its noble forebears. Inspired by the Brotherhood's uniquely balanced membership - precisely as many Protestants as Roman Catholics (thus acknowledging the Church's need for unity while simultaneously exposing the present lack of it) - this 'Mass of Unity' is designed to be performed by two choirs separately and/or together. Somewhat in the tradition of Ockeghem's Missa Prolationum and Missa Cuiusvis toni, the conceit is that there exists an invisible source - an original score - of which the two versions are radically different editions, thus playing with the tension between intention and interpretation, original and modern notation. The musical magic is that these two versions can also be sung together. The difficulty level varies between movements from moderate to virtuosic.< Less

Seven Letters By Antony Pitts
Paperback: $9.81

The words of the Seven Letters from the Book of Revelation are over 1900 years old, yet speak with a remarkably contemporary voice. The Laodiceans, the last of the seven churches addressed, think... More > they are rich in worldly terms, but do not realize that spiritually they are “wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked”. Each of these letters is declaimed by a solo – at times virtuosic – voice (originally written for individual members of the ensemble TONUS PEREGRINUS and recorded on Hyperion CDA67507), and each letter ends with the urgent refrain: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches”. The cover painting is by David Jenks: 'Finale'.< Less

TEST QUESTIONS ON THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION AND ON ASSOCIATED GEO- AND COSMO-CHRONOLOGY The word ‘theory’ has two meanings. When used in the expression ‘the theory of... More > evolution’ it does not mean an idea which has yet to be tested and shown to be correct. The theory of evolution has long been taught to successive generations of school and university students as scientific fact, established beyond question. The danger is that consequently our acceptance of the theory is insufficiently deep and well-founded. The purpose of these test questions is to discover how thorough our understanding of the theory really is. We cannot, in all intellectual honesty, continue to accept the theory unquestioningly unless we address questions such as these and are confident that robust answers exist.< Less

A setting for SATB(div.) of George Herbert's Love bade me welcome, commissioned by Edward Higginbottom to mark his retirement from New College, Oxford. "...from the moment I started working on... More > it, it was clear in my mind that this piece existed – complete, perfect, and (to me at least) unutterably beautiful and heart-rending. A murmur, a hue, a shadow, an outline, a pang – these are the beginnings of creativity that I’m aware of, but then I’m generally not aware of the real genesis of a piece of music, only sometimes – often they’re as impenetrable as forgotten dreams. When I do know I’m thinking about a (new) piece, I sometimes feel sure that I’m seeing or feeling it rather than hearing it. It – whatever it is – is amodal or multimodal, an Ur-expression of some deeper confluence of ideas or tangling of neurons..." http://antonypitts.klangr.com/work.aspx?ID=128390< Less
