Work introduction

Tria ex uno for 6 Instruments refers to a movement by Josquin Desprez (Agnus Dei II. from the Missa L’homme armé super voces musicales). In three steps (arrangement – commenting instrumentation – freely associative new composition), Haas draws parallels between his musical idiom and the compositional techniques of Josquin.
