Dedicated to Arnau and Oriol Vivancos

Liner Notes Constantly focussed on presenting music to the public in new and attractive ways, I propose this original performance-piece for choir for the moment the audience enters the concert-hall, recreating a multi-stereo special effect using soap bubbles that surround the public. The piece was conceived to be performed with the accompaniment of soap bubbles that float around the concert room, thus comprising a visual-acoustic piece. To this end, I propose that some ten or fifteen choir members blow soap bubbles from positions surrounding and above the audience to prolong their flight and create a stereophonic effect. The bubbles should all be of varying diameters and therefore rings of several sizes should be used to make them (the DULCOP model is recommended: www.dulcop.com). The bubbles are blown from letter A (bar 17) onwards, until bar 106. At the beginning and end of the piece, one, two or three choir members will make random bubbling noises (boiling water) by blowing into tall glasses through a straw. This will be done between bars 1 and 15 and between 106 and 110. The singers will not be placed as usual: they should either surround the audience or be placed amongst them in such a way as to cover the room’s whole acoustic field. Some singers, sopranos (or percussionists), will play crotales wherever the score shows the sign *, playing the corresponding note (resulting sound + 2 octaves). If no crotales are available a triangle can be played (small size and high-pitched). The room should be dimly lit using directional coloured lights so the bubbles can be seen in several colours. In those passages where the notes are written an octave higher, the A. I and A. II voices can sing them the lower voice. However, it is preferable for one or more high-pitched voices to sing the higher octave. Thus, some soprano voices should be added to the contraltos. All singers should sing the piece “non vibrato”, pronouncing all the consonants precisely and clearly and achieving a gravity-free, ethereal, sweet and gentle sound that, in its way, imitates the purity and colour of English or Scandinavian choir sounds. A choir of at least thirty six members is recommended. When composing the text composition I bore in mind the sound of the consonants and the instant they are pronounced, thus recreating the shining aspect of the performance. B.V.

Dedicated to P. Abat Cassià Ma. Just

Liner Notes (text in catalan) En rebre l’encàrrec de compondre una Salve Montserratina per a les Vespres solemnes de la benedicció del nou orgue del Monestir de Montserrat, vaig trobar escaient dedicar aquesta obra al recordat P. Abat Cassià Maria Just, abat emèrit de la comunitat benedictina d’aquest santuari, músic i bon organista, qui tant hauria gaudit fent sonar aquest bell instrument. Aquesta Salve no sols està dedicada al P. Cassià, sinó que també està composta establint algun paral.lelisme amb la seva persona, amb el seu ideal. El títol d’aquesta Salve Montserratina, “Cantantibus Organis”, ben adient per a l’ocasió, l’he extret de l’inici de l’himne en honor a Santa Cecília, patrona dels músics: “Cantantibus organis, Caecilia Domino decantabat dicens: fiat cor meum immaculatum, ut non confundar”. L’estructura formal de la Salve Montserratina es basa en la intercalació de cants polifònics en el cant gregorià de la Salve, tal com s’acostuma a fer a Montserrat. En les parts de gregorià, però, he optat per escriure l’acompanyament organístic, sovint basat en ressonàncies i textures modals que propicia la mateixa melodia original. En termes generals m’agradaria remarcar, per sobre de tot, un aspecte que he fet ben conscientment en l’elaboració d’aquesta Salve Montserratina. El Bisbe Joan Carrera, en un escrit al diari AVUI el dia 13 de març del 2008, glossava la figura del P. Abat Cassià amb aquestes paraules: “En el fons de la rica personalitat de l’abat Cassià hi trobem el seu cor de monjo. La vocació monàstica no té res a veure amb l’aïllament. És solitud en comunió, vertical i horitzontal”. Aquesta visió de l’home vertical i horitzontal alhora, relació que havia també sentit a dir del mateix P. Cassià, la trobo molt seductora. Una visió vertical (espiritual, de ple contacte amb Déu) i una d’horitzontal (més terrenal, tocant de peus a terra), es poden també traduir en música. Així ho he intentat plasmar en aquesta obra, amb una evident i constant utilització de dos efectes ben contrastats: d’una banda, acords placats molt sonors, d’harmonia complexa, sovint espectrals (verticalitat), i de l’altra, el treball de l’aspecte melòdic a l’uníson, sovint octavat, fet per tot el cor, que vol representar l’aspecte més horitzontal d’aquesta reflexió. B.V.

Dedicated to Sergi d’Assís Gelpí

Liner Notes I composed this simple blessing based on Montserrat’s Father Jordi Castanyer’s text, shortly after becoming Musical Director of the “Escolania de Montserrat” in August of 2007. On the occasion of the Saint’s Day of Brother Sergi d’Assís Gelpí, prefect of the Escolania, I wanted to dedicate this Meal Blessing to him, to be sung by “escolans” on special occasions, as is done with Father Ireneu Segarra’s previous setting of the same text. The evangelical text which heads the score, “I am the alive bread lowered of the sky…”, is illustrated by the descending scale of the first section, symbolizing nurishment from celestial divine generosity. This device is inverted in the second ‘thanksgiving’ section, where ascending lines signify mankind’s gratefulness to God (“To You, My God, I elevate my soul”). This muted minor modality of the conclusion shows man’s humility, contrasting with divine abundance. B.V.

Liner Notes (text in catalan) En aquesta petita harmonització o, millor dit, “desmodificació” de la cançó popular catalana de Nadal “El cant dels ocells”, he volgut fer una mirada polièdrica d’aquest cant focalitzant-me en el seu aspecte modal i harmònic. A resultes d’això, la melodia n’ha sortit també modificada. Conscient que distorsionar una melodia d’una bellesa inigualable com aquesta pot resultar un veritable sacrilegi, he volgut , això no obstant, traduïr la lluminositat que ens provoca el text (“el major lluminar”) amb la utilització d’una modalitat major, intentant de sorpredre l’oïent tant familiaritzat amb la modalitat menor d’aquesta coneguda cançó del nostre país.

Dedicated to David Padrós

Liner Notes “El cant dels ocells” is one of the best loved of all Catalan popular songs. Made popular by the celebrated cellist Pau Casals, this Christmas song tells the tale of the many kinds of bird who praised the Divine Infant’s birth with their song. This harmonisation differs from the more traditional versions employing a neutral modal language that never disfigures the ever-present major melody, surrounded by a constant, uniform aura of sound. The melody, presented by a soloist, gives way to a simple lineal pattern for three voices and finishes with a fuller, slightly gray atmosphere. B.V.

Dedicated to Guy Reibel

Liner Notes “Le cri des bergers” is a song of loneliness. It is also a cry of anguish, of suffering and uncertainty; essentially it is a lost song that resounds inside us. If we can only listen to these “echoes of silence” of this loneliness and anguish, the uncertainty and suffering of this lost song… we can turn the silence into magic, the magic into sound, and transform that into beauty. It will be then that loneliness mysteriously finds a companion; that anguish becomes peace and suffering becomes joy. It is then that this lost song finds its forceful response. B.V.

Also influenced by a recent discovery of spectral harmonies, it is a work that requires a certain level of interpretation. It is a love song, where I tried to describe the sensuality and beauty of the love dialog of the biblical text Salomon Song’s. B.V.

Dedicated to P. Gregori Estrada

Liner Notes On Montserrat Mountain, in the heart of Catalonia, a community of Benedictine monks has worshipped Catalonia’s Patron –known as the “Moreneta” or Dark Virgin of Montserrat– for over a thousand years. Each day at six o’clock in the morning, at Matins –the first communal prayer of the day– prayers are begun with “Obriu-me els llavis, Senyor, i proclamaré la vostra lloança”. Based on P. Gregori Estrada’s beautiful melody, I have written this piece in 5 parts, 17 voices in representation of the whole of God’s People who “sing his praises”. The piece is also a sincere homage to those people who have devoted their lives to God. B.V.
