Requiem Premiere

Sunday 4 November saw the premiere of my “Requiem” for equal voices, organ, and improvising trumpet. The performance took place in Vår Frue church in the beautiful city of Trondheim in mid Norway. The performers were the Nidarosdomen Girls’ Choir, Magne H. Draagen (organ) and Arve Henriksen (trumpet/electronics), directed by Anita Brevik.
