Canonic Chaos on Old 100th
By Anthony St. Pierre August 2009
A T B gtB
Based on the Louis Bourgeois tune for the 100th Psalm (Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow, or All People that on Earth do Dwell ) of 1551, this quartet is, like the Glass Menagerie quartet, which Anthony St. Pierre has also made available through the ARS, a perpetuum mobile featuring modally altered canonic treatment of the tune superimposed on the unaltered form of itself.

The piece poses no notable technical challenges, but phrases are long and in places, unrelenting. Duration: 1:45  Performed by Janos Ungvary, alto; Anne Massicotte, tenor; Anthony St. Pierre, bass; Scott Paterson, great bass
