Product details

'Requiem' was commissioned by Clayton Wesley Uniting Church and premiered by The Spire Quartet on Good Friday of 2019. The inspiration for the work came from a desire to add a contemporary Australian female compositional voice to the great many sacred works that draw inspiration from the traditional Requiem texts. The work intertwines the Latin text of a Requiem with excerpts from 'The Prayer Tree' by Australian poet and cartoonist Michael Leunig, resulting in a reflective but provoking journey through rest, confession, praise and acceptance.
