Howard Goodall's Eternal Light: A Requiem received a triumphant New York premiere in Carnegie Hall on 20 November 2016, an event presented by DCINY (Distinguished Concerts International New York).
The performance was given by a massed choir of 270 singers from across the USA and the UK, all conducted by Jonathan Griffiths. There was a standing ovation for Goodall himself, there in person and who had earlier given an insightful talk about the work (now approaching its 500th live performance).
'... it is a journey of beauty, heartache, and in the end, hope... one of the more moving things I have heard in some time.'
