Compuesto por varios autores Australianos
Por todos los que han muerto en la calle
Dura 40 minutos
Street Requiem is scored for mixed choir, soloists and chamber ensemble, aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance and hope to communities struggling with homelessness and street violence. The work is neither secular nor religious, but is intended to be spiritual and includes English and African lyrics, as well as traditional Latin texts. While at times deeply moving, the work is optimistic and uplifting, and employs gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque and contemporary compositional styles and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.
