Description

Missa Credo - for soprano solo, soprano, mezzo soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, choir, alto-/tenor sax and piano. A thousand years of music history merge together: in the Missa Credo Ulrich Zeitler combines Gregorian melodies from the medieval church with contemporary jazz. Bernhard Klas on the saxophone and Helmut Lörscher on the piano are masters of the stylistically linked improvisational method occupying a significant space in the Missa Credo. Maria Bernius and the Ensemble 333 assume responsibility for the more traditional part conducted by Ulrich Zeitler himself. For Ulrich Zeitler the Credo is a program: this deeply felt, very personal profession of faith forms the foundation in this composition. Very much in the tradition of the earliest church music, Zeitler avails himself of the "perfect division": each metrical unit can be divided into three subunits, as a symbol of the perfection of God, of unity in three persons. The ever present pedal point d underscores this unity, and, whether intentionally or not, the whole Credo attains a length of 333 measures!
