Description
The choral work Pater Noster II belongs to the Cycle of Choirs Praśasti (nr.7). These choir works are in a way music between heaven and earth as I want to sing a hymn to the glory of the presence of the divine, as it is inscribed in the book of nature. Praśasti (Sanskrit) means: inscriptional panegyric in honor of a king. Panegyrics were popular in late classic Sanskrit literature, but we can already find examples of the religious-magical purpose of the genre in Rigveda, Mahabharata and Ramayana: "to say a thing in ritual is to bring it to pass by mystical indentification." (Ingalls, 1972, p.211)
