Unlike the classical languages, English has a paucity of vocabulary when expressing love. Tres Amores (three loves) takes three Latin nouns which can be translated into English as ‘love’. The piece, which is set for double choir, has a deliberately trinitarian structure and the three sections rise in both pitch and intensity before relaxing into a peaceful final cadence.
