Requiem brings together the creative imagination of poet Josie Moon and the dynamic composition talents of Alan Barnes and Pat McCarthy.

 

The music is arranged by Alan for a stellar line-up of international artists; and is a bold and challenging work that examines the impact of conflict on individuals across a century, beginning in the trenches and ending in a robust call for peace in our time.

 

It is a moving but ultimately uplifting and soulful work, which invites the audience to both remember the history of conflict and resolve to do better in the future.

 

Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.

 

Pat is regarded as one of the country's leading jazz guitar players, and also an outstanding composer and educator. He has led his own bands and played and recorded with some of the top names in the industry, including Dave Newton and Alan Barnes.

 

Author, poet, composer, musician and singer, the very talented Josie Moon brings as much to the reading of her work as to the writing of it. Her poetry brings to life and compliments the music of Requiem.

 This commission has been made possible with Arts Council funding and is on tour now.
