Launceston Premiere
STREET REQUIEM

for those who have died on the street
by Kathleen McGuire, Andy Payne & Jonathon Welch

Created by Kathleen McGuire, Andy Payne and Jonathon Welch, Street Requiem aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance and hope to communities struggling to come to terms with street violence and a loss of safety on our streets. It is a highly accessible, contemporary work including additional English, African and Persian lyrics alongside a modern setting of the traditional Latin texts. While at times deeply moving, the work is essentially optimistic and uplifting. The composers have utilised gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque, Indigenous and contemporary genres and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.
