Work Overview

Work Details

Year: 2000, this version: 2004

Instrumentation: Organ.

Duration: 6 min.

Commission note: Commissioned by Calvin Bowman.

A free transcription of the a cappella choral version I made of my Dawn Mantras, telecast to the world at the dawn of the new millennium from the sails of the Sydney Opera House. I tried to recapture the serenity of the children’s voices with ethereal organ stops. Rhythmic pedals represent the didjeridu.
