ON CLASSICA

Classica is a musical meditation on time and eternity. Music, while performed and listened to in time, itself exists as a timeless and spaceless mystery. Universal themes occur in the music of all times and cultures: sonnets to beauty and romance, the melancholy recognition of transience, hope and longing for transcendence and redemption. In this spirit, this work aims to harmonize many disparate genres, worldviews, and ideas, seeking the common element, the absolute, the one that underlies and unifies the many.  With Classica, Metasonica seeks the harmony between Western Classical music, other traditional music forms of the world, and modern styles.

- Metasonica, March 2014

LYRICS



CREATION / THIS IS FOREVER

(© Metasonica)


In the beginning, there was only the silence

In the endless darkness of formless chaos

Until, at last, the sound began

Sending waves out into the infinite

Creating the world, the sun, and the stars

Arranging existence into harmony

The sound became music


The music of this universe

Reveals all that words cannot express

Of hope, of loss, of transcendence

Of what was and always will be

Of what is real... and what is a dream


Listen...


This is the past

This is the future

This is forever




ETERNITY

(Gregorian Chant, Latin)


Victimae paschali laudes

immolent Christiani.


Agnus redemit oves:

Christus innocens Patri

reconciliavit peccatores.


Mors et vita duello

conflixere mirando:

dux vitae mortuus,

regnat vivus.


Dic nobis Maria,

quid vidisti in via?


Sepulcrum Christi viventis,

et gloriam vidi resurgentis:


Angelicos testes,

sudarium, et vestes.


Surrexit Christus spes mea:

praecedet suos in Galilaeam.


[Credendum est magis soli

Mariae veraci

Quam Judaeorum Turbae fallaci.]


Scimus Christum surrexisse

a mortuis vere:

tu nobis, victor Rex, miserere.

Amen.
