Benedictus - First sketch

Yesterday, I jotted down a few notes for a new composition: Benedictus, seventh part of my Arc-en-ciel cycle. It will be for soprano voice, clarinet (or soprano sax), double bass, percussion and live electronics.

I have known for a long time that this piece will include latin words:

Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini
Hosanna in excelsis

But I just decided they would be complemented by Charles Baudelaire's poem L'examen de minuit (English translations).

When it's over, it will be interesting to see how much of this sketch remains in the final version!
