LAUDATIO for the Reformation

Commissioned by the Danish National Orchestra and the Radio Choir for a concert on the 31st of October I have written a Laudatio to commemorate the 500 years since Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Few single events in history have had such tremendous and lasting effects on Western culture.
The pieece will be first performed conducted by the young Briton Jamie Phillips on a concert which also contains music such as the Prelude to Wagners Parsifal and parts of Bach's Mass in b-minor. The concert can be heard live on Danish Radio - and in the audience will be our Queen.
