Join us for the world premiere of no alleluias, requiem for 2020 commissioned by just festival.
Live streamed performance.
No Alleluias: A Requiem for 2020 takes us on a musical journey from despair to hope. No Alleluias: A Requiem for 2020 is inspired by the raw and moving personal experience of loss and illness as described by Rev Dr Karen Georgia Thompson. This new choral commission pays respect to the extraordinary experience we have had during the pandemic and features the beautiful voices of of the City Centre Churches Together Choir and joined by our online Just Festival Chorus.
This event is a chance for us to share a short time together in memory of the pain, the exhaustion and ultimately celebrate the resilience of the human spirit. The pandemic showed us the irrelevance of our borders and reminded us of our global interdependence and the indivisibility our of human experience.
Music Composed by: Anthony Hammond (b.1977)
English words by: Robert RAE (inspired by the writings of the Revd. Dr. Karen Georgia Thompson).
