Beati mundo corde

Composer:Levente Gyöngyösi

Words by composer:

Beati mundo corde is a 3-minute long mixed choir hymn for the piece in which Latin text stands from the gospel of Matthew, part 5:

Blessed are the pure in heart: they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: they shall be recognized as
children of God.
Grant us peace! Amen.

The tonality of this very slow piece leads from C minor across E flat major to C major. The main motive of the piece on the text Beati it’s like a schleifer, a baroque ornament which can be found i.a. in famous Alto aria of St. Matthew Passion Erbarme dich.
