Product details

Ross Edwards, whose Lux Aeterna is the climax of The Diggers' Requiem, a composite work by Australian composers premiered in Llewellyn Hall on October 2017, has always wanted his music to act as an agent of healing and ritual - an important part of its age-old universal function.
"I see my Lux Aeterna as a prayer for peace," he says. "I was drawn to John Grant's Lament for the Pipers Lost in the Great War because it seemed to me to be an archetypal lamentation which resonated with my Scottish ancestry.
The combination of using it as a cantus firmus for the setting of the Lux Aeterna Latin text (in English - Eternal Light) and the sounding of the 62,000 bells for the 62,000 Australian WW1 dead, which form a halo around the piece, has given the work a mythic power".
Christopher Latham
