Patrice Libes studied at Conservatoire de Paris and was supervised by Roger Boutry, Bernard de Crépy, Jacques Castérède and Serge Nigg.
“Litanies” was created for the Maîtrise de Toulouse (headed by Mark Opstad). His polyphony is sometimes dense and requires notions of repetition, space, and resonance. It echoes Gothic chapels light or the sound of bells. The harp part is optional, because those pieces can be performed without any accompaniment.
