Sylvia Dunstan’s pointed, unsettling words resound: “God, hear the blood crying out from the ground.”
They find balance in O’Brien’s sensitive music for two solo voices and choir. The “miserere nobis” underpinning throughout provides a beautiful, comforting mantra.
A good piece to consider not only for Christmastide but also for the unborn or the funeral of a child.
