Christopher Gibert's Three Motets to the Virgin constitute a cycle of a cappella choral pieces, in resonance with the Marian theme dear to the composer.
"The motet Nigra sum is a reference to the Song of Songs. The symbolism of black transcribes the Virgin's pain in the face of the Passion. But this darkness follows a new beauty at the Resurrection.
Tota pulchra es Maria is a prayer that refers to the Immaculate Conception. I wrote this piece with equal voices, reinforcing its celestial character of great purity.
Finally, the Ave Regina Caelorum is an antiphon that paints a radiant virgin, root of the earth ("salve radix") in whom everything is reborn. I tried to express this radiance through a dynamic and playful writing. »
