MOON: Sunset (O Lux Beata Trinitas)

from by Timbre

about

Sunset is an exploration of the colors of sound, meant to be an experience that aurally depicts the progression of a sunset. As the “Sun” disc begins with a Sunrise, ending with a triumphant cello & violin duet announcing the dawn, Sunset opens the Moon disc, beginning at full light, with a soaring soprano solo announcing the coming twilight, a nightingale. This solo is the literal mirror of the cello theme, backwards, again demonstrating reflection. Sunset then explores the stages of brilliant light, fiery color, the calm as darkness covers the sky, building to a final glorious moment as the last ray of light shoots out over the horizon before disappearing into the peace of night.

lyrics

O lux beata Trinitas,
et principalis Unitas,
iam sol recedit igneus,
infunde lumen cordibus.

O Trinity, blessed light
And principal Unity,
Now as the fiery sun sets,
Pour thy light into our hearts.
