Magnum Mysterium

Magnum Mysterium / 2013 / Terry Long

Magnum Mysterium is a highly moving and spiritual piece of music, which was the inspiration for my painting above. This responsorial chant was published in 1572 in Venice, and has been reworked by a number of composers over the years, so I listened to several versions of the music before starting to work on my  own creation. I used the medium of  painting with light, with several coloured and clear LED lights. The following link is maybe my favorite version of  Morten Lauridsen’s  work…   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn5ken3RJBo
