Programme Note
Bent Sørensen Benedictus (2006)
Benedictus makes the listener listen to the world through a veil of voices wrapped tightly around the listener. Listening to the world is listening inwardly – “Think before you listen!”

Eighteen months ago I was on Gotland wandering among walls in the small streets, in the church, and I thought that it was actually a “Benedictus place” – the old Catholicism seen and heard through new Nordic eyes and ears.

Benedictus can of course be performed in the church in Visby or in other similar places, but it does not need to be a church. I would suggest having it on a programme with spatial music rather than a traditional choral programme. EA, vocal, instrumental works where the sound comes from everywhere around.
