Abstract

Lectio Divina is a musical exploration of the contemplative prayer and scripture‐reading practice called "Lectio Divina". The work is written for a chamber ensemble: flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion. Each instrument represents an individual that participates in this contemplative moment. There are three sections in the practice of Lectio Divina and thus three movements in its musical realization. As is intended in the contemplative practice, the three sections in this composition Lectio Divina progress from complexity and fullness to simplicity and understanding.
