The Poppy is a commemorative tribute to Armistice Day in the form of an original war poem set to music.
The soundtrack for my vintage video, Domine Deus, was taken fromMass For Christmas, premiered at St. Paul’s Church, Chichester, in 2005.
The Latin text to Domine Deus depicts the suffering of Jesu Christ, Lamb of God, which I set as a battle hymn. The driving timpani & string rhythms, plaintive horn & choral mantra seemed the most appropriate setting for The Poppy:
Domine Deus, rex coelestis, pater omnipotens, Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe, Domine Deus, Angus Dei, Filius Patris
Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father Almighty, the only begotten Son, Jesu Christ, Lamb of God, Son of the Father.
Thank you to all those who came to support our Summer Charity Concert 2019 & contributed to making it a success.
We were delighted to be a part of this community outreach event & hope that greater awareness has been made of the lifestyle & culture of the gypsy communities & the journey of Crisis in support of the homeless.
