for SATB voices and orchestra
This six-movement work celebrates the themes of peace and unity to produce music of beauty, power, compassion, and great poignancy. The choral writing contains semi-chorus and solo voices from within the choir, but no separate soloists are needed.
Orchestral material is available on hire.

Requiem aeternam ; An army marches into war ; Light looked down ; At dawn the ridge emerges ; Lord, make me an instrument ; Et lux perpetua, luceat eis
