Three Byzantine mosaics, to be seen in churches in Venice and Palermo inspired Franco Cesarini to compose this work. He took the musical motives from Gregorian chants. The mosaics concerned deptic the following extracts from "TheGospel According to St. Matthew". I. The NativityThe Magi from the East: "Where is the newborn King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in far-off eastern lands and we have come to worship Him." II. The Temple of JerusalemAndlook! The curtain secluding the Holiest Place in the Temple was split apart from top to bottom: and the earth shook and rocks broke, and tombs opened and many godly men and women who had died, come back to life again. III. Angelofthe ResurrectionAn angel of the Lord come down from heaven drew near, rolled away the stone and sat upon it. His countenance was lightning and his attire white as snow.

In diesem dreisatzigen Zyklus, zu welchem byzantinische Mosaiken der Kirchen von Venedig und Palermo die Inspiration lieferten, bilden gregorianische Gesange das musikalische Material. Den Mosaiken liegen drei Stellen aus dem Matthausevangelium zugrunde - uber die Geburt Jesu, den Tempel von Jerusalem und die Engel der Auferstehung.

Pour composer cette œuvre monumentale, Franco Cesarini s'est inspire de trois mosaiques byzantines qui ornent des eglises de Venise et de Palerme, et representent des passages de l'Evangile selon Matthieu. Les motifs musicaux developpes dans les trois tableaux de la composition sont empruntes a des chants gregoriens. 1. La Naissance de Jesus-Christ : Les Mages a Bethleem : "[...] l'etoile qu'ils avaient vue en Orient les precedait ; arrivee au-dessus (du lieu) ou etait le petit enfant, elle s'arreta. A la vue de l'etoile, ils eprouverent une tres grande joie." (Mt 2.9,10) / 2. Le Temple de Jerusalem : "[...] le voile du temple se dechira en deux du haut en bas,la terre trembla, les rochers se fendirent, les tombeaux s'ouvrirent, et les corps de plusieurs saints qui etaient decedes ressusciterent." (Mt 27.51,52) / 3. L'Ange de la Resurrection : "[...] car un ange du Seigneur descendit du ciel, vint rouler la pierre et s'assit dessus. Son aspect etait comme l'eclair et son vetement blanc comme la neige." (Mt 28.2,3).
