Super 'Pange, lingua'

Clarinet and string quartet

Duur: 5'20

For the Bennewitz Quartet and Harry-Imre Dijkstra

On Thomas of Aquinas’ hymn ‘Pange, lingua’ (‘Sing, my tongue’), that in the Protestant hymnals morphed into Psalm 39. This is a sister piece to I - Super ‘Victimae’ as well as to IV - Super ‘Spiritus’, quite simply because it re-uses some of their melodies, but in a setting that is at once more jubilant as well as more ominous.
