ISBN 9781491153635. 6.75 x 10.5 inches. Key: G minor. La, en. Hidegard Von Bingen transcribed by Michael John Trotta.

Trotta's composition is an energetic reimagining of timeless text and tune from the 12th century poet, composer, and philosopher Hildegard of Bingen. The marriage of the chant Caritas Abundat with a text taken from Liber Divinorum Operum (The Book of Divine Works) creates an entirely new work that expresses themes of empowerment. There is a reflective sense of the empowerment that comes from singing in a choir, especially the power of belonging to a group united for a purpose greater than oneself.
This commissioned work for womens choir is an energetic reimagining of a timeless text and tune from the twelfth-century poet, composer and philosopher Hildegard of Bingen. The text was selected as a reflection of the students' desire to express the empowerment that comes from singing in a choir, especially the power of belonging to a group united for a purpose greater than oneself. This piece marries the chant Caritas Abundat with a text taken from Liber Divinorum Operum ("The Book of Divine Works"), creating an entirely new work that expresses themes of empowerment. An adapted quotation of the tune is introduced in the violin, then taken up by the choir, treated to a five-part canon in the more reflective middle section, and finally changes meter for an energetic finish. I am the great and fiery force, That breathes life into all things: I am what awakens and supports life And enkindles all living things I am the great and fiery force, That breathes life into all things: Everything in the cosmos Is encircled with my wisdom. I am the beauty in the fields, The force, that moves like a graceful wind I shine in the waters, and burn in the sun, Glimmering in the stars. Caritas abundat in omnia (Grace abounds for everyone) [Liber Divinorum Operum (The Book of Divine Works), I.I.2].
