Renaissance influences in Morten Lauridsen's motet "Ubi Caritas et Amor"
by MacNay, Regan Arlene, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 67; 10133975
Abstract (Summary)

Southern Californian composer Morten Lauridsen’s motet Ubi Caritas et Amor is a work inspired by Renaissance composers Josquin Desprez, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and Tomás Luis de Victoria, and their compositional techniques. Using a medieval antiphon from Maundy Thursday as a unifying element, Lauridsen draws upon early Renaissance compositional techniques of chant paraphrase, points of imitation, voice pairings, and the clarity of text demanded after the Council of Trent to create a motet that at once hearkens back to the Renaissance era but also epitomizes the twenty-first-century American choral style.
