Pie Jesu (Héloïsa Fleury)
Agnus dei (Héloïsa Fleury)
Lux aeterna (Héloïsa Fleury)
The composer said that she wanted to compose a kind of journey during which both time and space would be undetermined and only the good and the bad would confront. The dead man would cry for his salvation, and we would all be searching for the truth.
This section is a dialog between the soloist (soprano) and the choir. The baritone begins the Agnus Dei and then sopranos and altos sings. The lyricism contrasts with the childish aspect of the melody. You can discover a part of this work through these three examples. You can be accompanied on the organ. Héloïsa Fleury was born in 1959 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She studied in France at two conservatories in Paris. She studied composing and analyzing with Claude Ballif and instrumentation and orchestration with Serge Nigg.

She wrote works for instrumental ensembles, sacred works like masses, requiems and psalms, and secular works.
