Misc. Comments

The predominant thematic elements of the 'Cantique en cinq versets' are confined to Eastern Raga systems, although developed according to Western traditions in polyphonic presentation with all the variabilities of modulation. In Eastern music there is a basic confinement to a certain number of specific Ragas, the structure of which is immutable as opposed to Western harmonic systems which are structured in line with various modulatives theories. The term Raga, which is generally translated as 'Melodic Formula', should actually be regarded as being a definition of something much more complex than just a specific mode or scale. It implies the formulation of emotions, and as such invokes a particular conditioning which can be described as the process of 'Tuning the Heart'. This composition is a Suite of Sacred Hindu dances, each of which is preceded by the same basic opening theme which leads the way into each of the five verses. These verses or 'Chants without words' are meant to be devotional expressions of worship to the Almighty Grace. in homage to the Mahatma Gandhi Gandhi Symphony (Cantique en cinq versets) opus 25 Verset 1 Refrain page 5 Très rythmé Verset page 10 Avec douceur Verset 2 Refrain page 21 Très rythmé Verset page 26 Lent Verset 3 Refrain page 35 Très rythmé Verset page 41 Avec grâce Verset 4 Refrain page 54 Très rythmé Verset page 64 Avec sérénité Verset 5 Refrain page 81 Très rythmé Verset page 85 Soutenu Coda page 103 Mystérieux
