Rosa mystica (Vocal Score)

for Soprano solo, children’s voices (or women’s semichorus), mixed chorus, chamber orchestra and piano.

Rosa mystica is a sacred devotional cantata combining various texts in which a rose or flower is used as an analogy for the Blessed Virgin Mary, including the Rosa Mystica tradition, and Mary as the stem of the rose from which, arising out of the root of Jesse, grew Jesus, the Spotless Rose.

In three movements, it is variously scored for Soprano solo, unison children’s voices (or women’s semichorus), mixed chorus (without divisi), oboe, cor anglais, bassoon, trumpet, piano and strings. Alternative instrumental parts may be substituted: flute and clarinet for oboe and cor anglais, and solo cello for bassoon.

This is the vocal score, which contains the Soprano and other vocal parts, with a piano reduction of the chamber orchestra/piano accompaniment. The work can, if necessary, be performed with piano accompaniment only, using this reduction.

Purchasers of performance sets of the vocal score can obtain a licensed downloadable copy of the full score and orchestral/full piano parts at no additional cost, on request from the composer.

    As is often the case with my work, this music seemed to naturally grow out of the text—a haunting medieval poem about the death of Jesus Christ. The poem’s enigmatic symbolism and otherworldly affect resulted in what was for me an unusually mysterious and ethereal composition. Some of the inspiration for the work came from […]
