This large-scale choral work – in English, Welsh and Latin – has been commissioned by S4C, the Welsh language TV channel, to mark the 50th anniversary of what has become known to subsequent generations – both in the UK and around the world – as the Aberfan Disaster.
Amongst modern choral circles, Karl Jenkins is a composer and a brand. A brand that stands for an epic, moving sound that connects with people from all different age groups and backgrounds.
In the first large-scale works since the best-selling The Armed Man: A mass for Peace, this special and profoundly emotional new work features no one less than the celebrated welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, as well as leading Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, and a host of children and adult voices.
Though written to commemorate a specific and profoundly sad event, the emotions and themes housed within this special music can resonate beyond: loss, then the transition from darkness into light are truly universal occurrences.
