Sheet Music: Score
Dawn Desiderata / Raffæle Marcellino ; text adapted by the composer from Max Erhmann
by Raffæle Marcellino (2008)
Dawn Desiderata was commissioned by the Sydney
Philharminia Choirs for the 2009 Sydney Festival for the Dawn
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.
