Canadian composer Paul Frehner discusses his newly commissioned piece 'Corpus', for choir and percussion ensemble (2012).
"My work on Corpus began with exploring mystical, religious and metaphysical writings on the universal topic of the human body and spirit in its various states of life, death, oblivion and afterlife. While compiling a libretto for this work I was interested in finding several texts, written in different languages and dating from different eras in history, that dealt with this subject matter and which I felt could be complementary when set musically, despite any linguistic, poetic or stylistic differences"
Paul Frehner, 2012
