Fortuna vitrea est is a three-part work with piano accompaniment based on a beautiful saying in Latin. Originally, this piece was written for SSA, but has not yet been performed in that line-up. Especially for Koor&Stem, Vigdis reworked the piece into a version for SAB with piano, the existing material shaped a brand new piece. The composer wrote a number of pages around the text Fortuna vitrea est tum cum splendit (Happiness is like glass, when it is at its shiniest...) only to unleash onto the audience the pointe frangitur (it breaks) in short notes in the last bar as a finale of the piece.
