Craquelure is the fine pattern of dense cracks formed in a material over time, usually in the ageing of paint or ceramics. The piece loops the first ‘Sanctus’ setting in Machaut’s La Messe de Nostre Dame through various permutations and processes, sometimes obsessing over, and getting suspended in, brief moments. Sancti settings explore a spiritual ecstasy; they have a quality of temporal stasis, they are passages of indulgence.
