Agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi (2008)
for six musicians (gayageum, daegum, piri, piano, cello and guitar)
Huber's latest setting to music of the "Agnus Dei" was born out of decades of influence from Younghi Pagh-Paan, whose traditional music from her Korean home became an ideal projection screen for remembering and longing for the overcoming suffering and sadness. He created a dialogue between our European sounds and three Korean instruments - and their completely different tunings: flute (daegum), zither (gayageum) and oboe (piri).
