Secret Supper

The ‘Secret Supper’ has been the object of artistic inspiration through the ages. The themes of betrayal, farewell and modesty of the teacher towards the pupils are predominant.

What catches my interest and makes the scene of the supper relevant is its aspect of a “secret” and “last” meeting. Familiar situations in the recent reality, during which this choral piece was composed.

The latin text is taken from the gospel of Mark. The musical parameters like harmony and rhythm are based on the translation/encryption of a second text into musical values.
