What does it mean to be alive, knowing that life is finite?

Poignantly shaped around poetry by Bill Manhire, Sam Hunt, Chloe Honum, Ian Wedde, and James K Baxter, and inspired by the visual language of acclaimed photographer, Anne Noble, this world premiere work from award-winning composer Victoria Kelly explores one of the most ancient musical forms, the Requiem, and takes it to new secular and spiritual heights.

In contemplating our existence, the natural world, and feelings of wonder, loss, longing, desire, and surrender, Kelly has created a rare orchestral and choral work of great beauty and power. Featuring the exquisite voices of Simon O’Neill and Jayne Tankersley, alongside music by Debussy and Mahler, and a new composition for taonga puoro and orchestra by Ruby Solly, this concert promises to be a highlight of the Festival, one that will touch the soul and lift the spirit.
