  • This work was written for the composer's son who directed the Ensemble Vocal de Neuilly, a city very close to Paris. This "motet" (or cantata?) is  built up in different parts which follow one another thanks to the organ which plays an essential role in the score. The choir dialogues with the soloist allow to alternate lively and peaceful passages.
  •  The poem by Patrice de la Tour du Pin, a composer's friend, celebrates the resurrection celebrated at Easter and the creative (re) birth of Genesis. This word is repeated here multiple times as an incantation, a shout, a punctuation.
  • This is a demanding work where Jacques Berthier combines harmonic richness and melodic fluidity. Genesis is published here for the first time.
