A fun time-bending journey through the past and the distant future, powered by a much-loved musical pattern, some great music-making by the Gryphon Trio, Rob Carli, Patricia O’Callaghan and the incredible, constantly re-appearing Jamie Parker.
A hearty tip of the hat to David Mewa for the consistently brilliant camera work and direction on all these videos.
How the Dies Irae, the medieval song of death, has so far ushered out 40 human generations, and through the help of Star Wars and The Lion King, is happily dying still.
This one relied on the life-giving work of three angelic harps, a bassoon, a tuba, two pianos, lots of percussion, four singing monks and an unseen but very-much-there improvising bass clarinet. It’s to die for!
