Invictus: A Passion seeks to address one of the most powerful and dramatic of the world’s traditional religious stories through the lens of a diverse, modern world. A variety of texts written or inspired by women form a narrative that describes human suffering and persecution, but also emphasises the human capacity for love and humility in the face of tyranny. These universal messages are brought to life with the emotional clarity and sweeping force of any Howard Goodall score.
Invictus: A Passion is scored for soprano solo, tenor solo, SATB choir and chamber orchestra. The vocal score includes a piano reduction.
