Product details

Dawn Desiderata was commissioned by the Sydney Philharminia Choirs for the 2009 Sydney Festival for the Dawn Awakenings events.
The text is adapted from Max Erhmann's Desiderata, which for years was thought to be an anonymous 18th century text found by accident in a New England Church.
The work is intended as a gentle whisper to the ear of the community in its daily awakening of what is increasingly a complex world, saturated with with information and knowledge.
So much so that truth, reason, emotion, lies, rhetoric, verbage lie tanlged, undifferentiated and completely accessible to all.
