Martin Völlinger uses Henri Du Mont’s well-known melody as the basis for his richly varied new setting of the Salve regina. Jubilant, sometimes also plaintive and powerful, the text unfolds along the lines of syncopated rhythms. At the same time homophonic and polyphonic setting alternates as well as different tempi. Recurring passages on which Völlinger imitates the Gregorian choral style connects the various expressive sections. This piece is a rewarding challenge for dedicated church and chamber choirs.
This work, commissioned by the conductor Rainer Held, was premiered under his direction on April 10, 2016 by the Cze˛ stochowa Choir, “Collegium Cantorum” (principal conductor Janusz Siadlak).
“The ‘Salve regina’ is a further milestone in Martin Völlinger’s oeuvre. The composer is consistantly guided by Gregorian music and combines it with modern, word based rhythms, tonal, harmonic opulence and, above all, excellent phrasing. All this makes this varied choral work an extraordinary, very well-wrought piece which, as we experienced at the premiere, produced a striking effect.” (Rainer Held, choral and orchestral conductor, academic professor)
