Work Details

Year: 1996

Instrumentation: Cello, piano.

Duration: 10 min.

Difficulty: Advanced — Good amateur - professional.

First performance: by Eleanor Lewis, Kerry Yong — 21 Sep 96. Great Hall, University of Sydney

Lament was written not long after the memorial service for the victims of the Port Arthur massacre of May 1996. It is not so much a direct response to this event in particular, but rather an attempt to capture the feeling of immense sadness that was present at this, and indeed every other, funeral service.

The cello part has been ‘set’ to the text of The Lord is my Shepherd, a religious text that was used at the memorial service for the Port Arthur victims.
