The two voices in Benedictus
The last hour of 2020 is coming. I am very grateful to Matthew Arndt for listening with such care to Benedictus - and for writing about the song on the Academic Music @ UIowa blog.
Matthew heard in Benedictus two voices, the one harsh and the other mournful. He makes many connections and gives great references to explore. I hope you enjoy his text!
I wish all of you a happy new year - it's coming, right after Midnight!
