MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

Did you notice the word ' saccharine' used by the critic in the piece below? of course you did ! How did I react? roared with laughter !! I realised that Requiem evokes some interesting reactions!

 

 In krakow for example, after the performance in the Summer Festival there, 3 men approached me in tears. Each one had experienced a death in the family during the previous year,   they all said ( not altogether ) that the music gave them hope!! because it has moments of joy and triumph. I was very humbled by this experience and indeed again 2 years later after a performance in Monaco Cathedral ( myself conducting this time ).... again , it was men who approached me emotionally moved.

 This gave me hope for our planet.

The Requiem was conceived as a work which heralded the imminent arrival of ' the New Order' . Astronomers and Astrologers have studied this evolution for thousands of years and this year there was a great drama concerning ' the end of the Mayan Calender' , ' the end of the world'!! Indeed, let us hope so ....by that I mean the end of the present horrific creation we have been responsible for and the beginning of the Beauty of Love, Compassion, Wisdom and Caring for each other and indeed the Animals and the Planet itself .

 . The Soprano Soloist symbolizes the Age of Aquarius ( now being entered into) urging us onwards and upwards and the Alto represents the Age of Pisces, which we are evolving beyond and who's function is to stabilise us as we evolve.  Not in 5 minutes of course but at least we have the possibility to make a start!!
