Ivan Moody: Troparion De Kassiani By The Mora Vocis Ensemble
A hypnotic mix of voices
With a sustained base note holding throughout the chant, this beautifully chordal work uses polyphonic and monophonic voices to great effect. Moody’s 1999 work is a testament to the women who discover Jesus’ empty tomb. Born in London in 1964, Ivan Moody read both composition and theology at university and these liturgical influences on his music are unmissable. Troparion de Kassiani is a magnificent example of contemporary choral composition.
