About the work:
De Angelis is based on the antiphon ‘O gloriosissimi lux vivens angeli’ by Hildegard of Bingen, the twelfth-century mystic, poet and composer. Hatzis includes Hildegard’s entire setting of her own text within the work, and her original is the focal point from which the music departs and returns throughout. The work is envisaged for performance in a church or similar liturgical setting, and the three altos, who sing together, and drone parts are disposed throughout the space.
