Holy, Holy, Holy (Sanctus)

The Greek passage from Revelations 4 known as the Sanctus, Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord, God Almighty who was and who is and who is to come, and Benjamin Britten's Sanctus exchange voices in this mixed media collagraph.

A collagraph is an intaglio printing process, which uses a built-up collaged plate made from a great variety of materials (strips of fabric, thread, alumionum foils, plants, marbel dust, acrylic modeling paste) that are glued onto the surace of masonite or cardboard. The surface is then painted or inked and run through an etching press at several thousand pounds of pressure, thereby transfering the paint and the texture to the surface of the paper. The process is completely repeated to create another print in the edition.
