In this composition Schneider uses the famous words from the liturgy for Good Friday: “Darkness fell, and on the ninth hour Jesus called out with a loud voice: My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?” Here he draws on the earlier form of the “trope”, using what was a common device in composition in medieval times, inserted into already completed works as a sort of commentary. In this sense • making use of the post-modern principle of

suggesting links across the ages • TENEBRAE makes reference to the motet “Tenebrae factae sunt” (Schott, C 51305) by Davide Perez (1711-1782), from which some melodic fragments have been taken and freely developed. An explosively contrived stylisation is set against the self-contained world of sound in the original piece.
