"Beati Pauperes II originated in October / November, 1979 on suggestion of Hans Zender to pay tribute to Orlando di Lasso.The work was performed for the first time -- in the version for small orchestra, seven single voices A cappella choir -- on the 17th of December, 1979 under the direction of Hans Zender and Josef Schmidhuber by the choir and by the broadcasting Symphony orchestra of the Bavarian in the Munich Herkulessaal.
I call this work, therefore, contrain voice because it concerns 4-voices Lasso-Motetten "Beati pauperes" and "Beati pacifici", on this occasion, around a Rekomposition of the both (from Wolfgang Boetticher a new discovered and after the vocal basting spartierten).
By the choice and concentration of the Sermon on the Mount texts and their "Konkretisierung" in the text fragments from Ernesto Cardenal I would like to remind of all arms, starving, degraded who starve "and covet justice", and their right would be "under blue sky" in a peaceful world to live in a new society." Klaus Huber
In the first part of my composition everybody became successive in "Beati pauperes" appearing (absolute ones!) pitches in the three 8-voices and a 9-voices chord split which form together a chain of eight chords going over into each other in relatively narrow situation with her reflexions faithful to interval. The same eight chords, however, in extremely wide situations pulled apart, are overlaid at the same time in Krebsläufigkeit of the primary chord result. In the second part it was proceeded with the pitch material by "Beati pacifici" analogously.
This material basing on lasso of my contrainvoice forms the progressively changing, virtually atmospheric reason on which perpetually timbre changes take place in pulsating rhythms. (Simultaneous Prolationen of lasting, for example, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17).
