Jeshua, Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh (Jesus, Holy Holy Holy)

Jeshua, Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh (Jesus, Holy Holy Holy) illustrates the history of choral writing from Medieval, Baroque, Classical, Korean traditional, Romantic, funky jazz to Contemporary styles in the structure of the biblical model of worship in Isaiah 6. The structure of the entire program of the concert, which is derived from the liturgy for worship based on the model of Isaiah’s response to God’s Revelation in Isaiah 6, consists of a prelude, eight movements, and a postlude. The text of the cantata is derived from the Scripture except for the chanting sections by the composer in the movements three (Confession)and six (Dedication).
