Event Details

Requiem brings together the creative imagination of poet Josie Moon and the dynamic composition talents of Alan Barnes and Pat McCarthy along with a stellar line-up of international artists: Dave Green, Gilad Atzmon, Mark Nightingale, Sebastiaan De Krom, Dean Masser and Neil Yates.

It is a bold and challenging work that examines the impact of conflict on individuals across a century, beginning in the trenches and ending in a robust call for peace in our time.

The work honours those who have fought, died and made huge personal sacrifices while also asking important questions about the very nature of warfare.

Using the traditional format of the Latin Mass, the work is a secular prayer for the whole of humanity. Daring and audacious in style and structure, Requiem is a moving but ultimately uplifting and soulful work which invites the audience to both remember the history of conflict and resolve to do better in the future.
