'... in Paradiso' was composed for a performance of Haydn's Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross. Six composers were asked to write music that might be played between Haydn's meditations for strings. The other composers were William Barton, Brett Dean, James Ledger, Georges Lentz and Anthony Pateras. ' . . . in Paradiso' was created to occupy the slot after the second 'Word' (more accurately , utterance) and before the third - specifically, after the sentence 'Verily, I say unto thee, today thou shalt be with me in Paradise' and before 'Mother, behold thy son'. Haydn's music for the former ends with a chord of C major, while his music for the latter is in E. So ' . . . in Paradiso' joins the two.
Instrumentation: 9 or more flutes. Can also be played by three flutes each with digital delay.
Duration: 6 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — AMEB Grade 8
