Product details

Love is Born is the 6th movement (of 7) from my Requiem, composed in 2019 for SATB vocal quartet and organ. The text for this movement, as for the rest of the Requiem, combines the traditional Latin Requiem Mass text with excerpts from Michael Leunig's 'The Prayer Tree'. For Love is Born, the Leunig poem from which the movement gets its name is combined with the Latin 'Lux Aeterna'.
This arrangement for wind orchestra was made upon the request of my good friend and colleague David John Lang, as a 'palate cleanser' for the Adelaide Wind Orchestra's April 2021 concert 'Leunig's Prayer Book'. It subsequently received its interstate premiere in May 2021, where it was performed by the Sydney Conservatorium Wind Orchestra, conducted by Steven Hillinger.
Love is born
With a dark and troubled face,
When hope is dead
And in the most unlikely place
Love is born.
Love is always born.
-Michael Leunig
from The Prayer Tree

Lux æterna luceat eis, Domine:
Cum Sanctis tuis in æternum:
quia pius es
(Let everlasting light shine upon them, Lord,
with thy saints for ever,
for Thou art merciful.)
-from the Requiem Mass
