Life Comes Into Being Life Passes Away for mixed choir
Within a few bars, "Leben entsteht, Leben vergeht" (Life arises, life passes away) creates a tonal mixture of melancholy and a mood of departure, which allows singers and listeners alike to immerse themselves in the music and lyrics.
Similar to a circling perpetuum mobile, the piece emphasises in 3-4 bars the meaning of the cycle of life - of coming into being and passing away.
The work captivates with its light and touching melody and harmony, which creates a floating but also dense sound experience.
All voices are in a pleasant register, so that nothing stands in the way of a quick performance for a variety of occasions.
