Sweetangel 02:17
I did not wish to use a biblical text for this work. Alternatively I ask the singers to improvise pseudo-Latin and pseudo old French words and syllables, the idea being to evoke the sounds of an old language, of another time. The rhythms were given to the singers, with some syllables written in, others were improvised or written in as we rehearsed.

about

'Passion' is the score for the theatre work of the same name, made by the legendary Sydney post-dramatic theatre group The Sydney Front, in 1993, presented at The Performance Space, Sydney. Like the medieval passion plays, the audience performed the entire work, the episodes each inspired by either biblical texts or liturgical rites.
