Programme Notes
Perpetual Light fuses live choir, film and installation to create a unique and profoundly moving experience that remembers those who lost their lives in the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  The Requiem is also a testament to humankind’s extraordinary will to survive. It is this celebration of hope that has earned the concert the endorsement of UNESCO, the United Nations body dedicated to fostering international peace and understanding.
