Year of composition
The Mass for peace was written during the winter of 2021, commissioned by El cor canta to be premiered at its annual concert at L’Auditori de Barcelona in 2022. Despite not being a follower of any faith, I found many expressive possibilities in the text of the Catholic Mass, with contrasts between the different parts, with which to write some powerful and communicative music. The title gives special emphasis to the last movement, Dona nobis pacem, which is independently added to Agnus Dei. Peace in the world is a universal desire.
