For those who missed my ”Millennium mass” Missa Praesentis Dialectica.
Linked below, you find a film with the entire concert.
Also watch interesting pre-talks with bishop Susanne Rappman, vicar Ingvild Fallegård, concert master Amus Kerstin Andersson, tenor Carl Unander-Scharin, conductor Stefan Parkman, project leader Marit Torkelson and myself, lead by organist and facilitator Hans Davidsson.
THANK YOU ALL who made Missa Praesentis Dialectica, composed to the turn of the millennium come alive after 22 years.
In this mass I put several profane poems from the 20´th century together with the liturgical parts. It became a dialectical, operatic mass, in which I wanted to put doubt and the subjective human voice side by side (and in fact inside) traditional themes of faith, worship and believe. It took until 2022 before it was premiered, in the Uppsala Dome.
On January 22th, the Gothenburg audience got a chance to listen to the one hour mass which has risen and come alive in a way I did not expect, thanks to producer, organist, entrepreneur, music master Hans Davidsson.
