Lithuanian culture still has strong ties to its pagan roots. The text for Incantatio is based on a traditional curse against snake bites. This type of verse was pronounced backwards which provides an interesting structure, a fine challenge for a composer to rebuild its original meaning.

Commissioned by festival Musica Sacra Maastricht.

For Irene Kurka.
