Nunc Dimittis

2016, 9 mins - bassett rec. & tenor

I composed this piece for basset recorder and tenor. It was written in 2016 for UMS & JIP. While I was composing the piece, I had the opportunity to work closely with Ulrike and Javier and experiment with various recorders and tessituras. As a result, I was able to explore and go deeper into the formal procedures and ideas of the piece.
