Album Summary

>Togni, Peter Anthony : Responsio, for soprano, mezzo-soprano, 2 tenors & bass clarinet
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In Responsio Peter-Anthony Togni reflects, comments, refutes, challenges and embellishes the bare medieval voice of Guillaume de Machaut and his masterpiece the Messe de Nostre Dame. Responsio is scored for solo bass clarinet and vocal quartet, and includes the entire Messe de Nostre Dame within the fabric of a 55 minute work. Juxtaposing bursts of bass clarinet improvisation against through composed choral material, Responsio casts the role of the bass clarinettist into that of a time traveller, bringing forward Machaut's beautiful 14th creation into the heart of the 21st century.
