This work was written as a commission for Baroque Voices, with funding from Creative NZ, to be premiered at the Baroque Voices "Alleluia: a newe work!" concert in May 2008. The concept of the performance is to juxtapose Contemporary New Zealand works with Medieval European ones – and in this case, Hoquetus Sanctus pairs well with Hoquetus David (written by Guillaume de Machaut in the 14th Century), as it explores the idea of hocket, where vocal lines are 'shared' between different voices, sometimes jumping from one to another and overlapping each other – however, it can equally well be performed in any choral concert.
Hoquetus Sanctus is a setting of the Latin Sanctus text for a capella chamber choir or small vocal ensemble.
Commissioned by Baroque Voices with funding from Creative New Zealand
Suitable for experienced youth choir or youth vocal ensemble
Dedicated to the composer's singing friend Dinah Wright
