This piece was composed on the occasion of the tenth shared concert between the Chantecléry choir of Ferrières-en-Gâtinais, Ars Musica and Saerbecker Singgenmeinshaft of North Rhine-Westphalia.The meaning of the text seemed adapted to the celebration of Franco-German reconciliation.
The first verse of this Gregorian hymn has often been set to music, when the second rarely, as here.
Some words or parts of sentences have been particularly highlighted. The flute part is like a fifth voice dynamically taking the other four in its wake. It is possible to interpret it as the positive reversal of the role played by this instrument in some Germanic legends.
