Vagn Holmboe: Hominis Dies Op.158a - Liber Canticorum Va (SATB)

Books | SATB

Composer: Vagn Holmboe
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

The text for the choral work 'Hominis dies' is partly form the book of psalms, partly from Isaiah in the Latin translation of the Bible. The words are relevant today - they are about the fate of humanity - our fear of war and destruction, violence and polution.
The choral work is divided in three parts, all of them introduced with a Halleluja. A Halleluja is most often a praise, but that is not the case in this work, where the suppressed and oppressed manking with this work express desperation and sorrow, but also hope.
