"Ortus Miraculum" was commissioned by Concertband Musica (Ham - Belgium), on the occasion of the birth of Lucy, daughter of composer Yves Wuyts. A programmatic concert work of 4 continuous movements.
The name Lucy is used throughout the work as thematic material: L(la=A)U(do=C)C(do#=C#)Y(si=B).
The first part is about the miraculous birth of life, part two refers to the first light of life. The joy of a birth and sometimes the first uncertainties and more difficult moments.
The third part describes the love and innocence of a child, and the last part is again a fast movement and sketches the moment a child starts to explore the world.
