Missa Mater Sola

An ode to the natural primal force of the protective, healing mother archetype full of unconditional love.

Missa Mater Sola ('Mass about the lonely mother') is the second in the Missa triptych, after Missa Homo Sacer, and examines the relationship between the individual and the (singing) community. The mother figure is wrung out of the Maria mould with stylized tears. The ancient Stabat Mater is reinterpreted and culminates in a Stabat Mater Gloriosa: an ode to the natural primal force of the protective, healing mother archetype full of unconditional love. In this ritual about caring and letting go, five swarming male singers carry a dancer (Mother) while a flautist breathes along and weaves together the voices from the future and the past on the side-line.
