Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Quaoar is a musical setting of the Lord’s Prayer translated in Tongva language by the missionaries. It’s a composition, divided into three parts, inspired by the Indian mythology of the god Quaoar who created everything which exists between the singing and dance. The dramatization of the piece separates the choir into four segments, situated around the audience. Passages with strong rhythm alternate with meditative ones, intensified by the quadrophonic division of the choir.
