Programme Note:
Impressed by a visit to the new Coventry Cathedral in England, built next to the ruins of the XVth century Cathedral which was all but completely destroyed during World War II, I remain touched by the beauty of the very modern windows, through which light coloured by the glass filters its flashing rays.

Based on seven sounds (seven brass instruments), the work unfolds in seven chorales (or refrains) by the entire ensemble which are interspersed by duets, trios and quartets played by the various combinations made possible by this group of instruments. Despite the site of the works's "creation", it does not pretend to be a sacred work, but one of spirituality, as in the case of poetry. Since the new Coventry Cathedral is devoted to reconciliation, the work takes its name from this vocation - hence the title, "Lumières sculptées" (sculptured lights),"Litanie de la réconciliation" (the litany of reconciliation).

"Lumières sculptées" has been commissioned by the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, for its 25th concerts season, with the help of the Canada Arts Council.
