Voca me

I composed Voca me in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2009. The text is part of a Latin hymn called “Dies Irae” attributed to either Thomas of Celano or to Latino Malabranca Orsini . The hymn dates from at least the thirteenth century, though it is possible that it is much older, with some sources ascribing its origin to St. Gregory the Great, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, or St. Bonaventure. The poem describes the day of judgment, the last trumpet summoning souls before the throne of God, where the saved will be delivered and the unsaved cast into eternal flames. The main theme is sung by all the parts in different moments. The repetition of the main theme is a reinforcement of the meaning of this prayer.
