The Ave verum directs our gaze towards Christ crucified on the cross for us in the form of a prayer of adoration. In this setting, a sound pulsates at first which can be described as gently shining. A syncopated motif introduces an “interruption” with the note c sharp which gradually allows the tension to increase. The phrase “cujus latus perforatum” [from whose pierced side] is penetrated by the “cry” of a solo soprano. The choir breaks off abruptly. The world holds its breath. Whilst the pulsating sonority has an increasingly inexorable character up to this point, from now onwards it appears in the light of an unending confidence and affectionate prayer of adoration. The concluding modal sequences of sounds intensify the impression of devotion and peace.
