For Christmas

Hand-set letterpress print, 2010

The above print is based on a medieval framework for contemplation.  This four-tiered structure is mirrored in the four-part sections of Gothic cathedrals wherein Victoria and his contemporaries wrote music structured in four overlapping parts. The "thinking-architecture" connection is still only speculative, however, and the four-part polyphony probably has more to do with the acoustics of the buildings than any philosophical venture. But it seems worthy of contemplation...  Merry Christmas.
