De Profundis, Choral opus by Claude Vercher, for three mixed voices choir SAB (two women voices and one men’s voices) and accompaniment with three glasses :
This excerpt from Psalm 130 (From the depths I cry out to Thee, O Lord) for three mixed voices explores the contrast between the imploring character of the voices and the crystalline sound (like a light from beyond) brought by the high harmonics of the three pitches of the glasses.
In constant support to the vocals and the dialogue between voices, these glasses are a guide for the entries and helps sustaining the melodic lines.
This musical experience is surprising in many ways.
