Acclamatio (2018) is dedicated to Klaus Stehling. It is bold music based upon the short chant “Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat” (“Christ conquers, Christ reigns, Christ commands”). This hymn is also called the Laudes Regiæ, the Royal Acclamations used church for certain ceremonial occasions. The acclamations had their origins in ancient Rome and became Christianized in later years.
