Ego sum panis vivus

Composer: Matteo Magistrali


Words from composer:

The motet – which alternates Latin and German languages – opens with an energetic and sonorous moment, converging towards delicate and bright situations. This represents the voice of Christ who offers himself in the Eucharistic mystery and follows the different nuances presented in the text. The musical language and harmonic combinations are often unusual and incisive, precisely to remark the words of Jesus who speaks personally. This utters a context of discursive continuity with an alternation of characters that ever maintains vitality and interest in the composition.
