Caplet’s mystic Le Miroir de Jésus, a setting of poems by Henri Ghéon composed in 1923, is highly unusual in its structure of fifteen sections in which the Christian meditates on the mysteries experienced by the Virgin Mary through events in the life of her Son, as if in a ‘mirror’ of herself. Equally unusual is its scoring: mezzo soprano, female chorus, harp, and string quintet. A rare, refined work, for contemplation as much as listening.
