Description: Three Short Sacred Anthems for treble choir, based on three Latin liturgical texts, was written in the winter of 1980. It borrows textures, structures and techniques from ancient settings of these words. Yet despite its clearly nostalgic, polyphony and its historically evocative rhythmic language, its harmonic usage combined with its personal tone painting and its slightly asymmetrical forms subtly but strongly veer toward twentieth and 21st century view of tonality and of faith.
