John Tavener: Coplas: SATB

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation SATB and Electronics
Composer John Tavener
Publisher Chester Music

John Tavener's Coplas, composed in 1970, for SATB Choir. Score and performance CD.

'Coplas is a short anthem for voices and tape. It belongs to a much larger work called 'Last Rites' which I have been thinking about for about a year. It is based on the mystical idea of St. John of the Cross which obsesses me - 'the more I live the more I must die.' Hence the deliberately static nature of Coplas.

In once sense Coplas is a prolonged decoration of the 'et sepultus est' cadence from the Crucifixus in Bach's Mass in B minor. In another sense I think of it not so much as my music but a way of listening to Bach's music.' - John Tavener
