Anne Dudley’s specially commissioned piece ‘One Touch of Nature’, written for Nidaros Cathedral’s Girls’ Choir will premiere on the 23rd October at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway.
“In the work “One Touch of Nature”, she has taken texts from various sources within the theme of “rewilding”. The work has two consistent messages: Man’s eventual lack of contact with nature, but also nature’s wonderful ability to renew itself. “Nature has, if given the opportunity, an enormous ability to restore ecological balance”, writes Dudley in her description of the work. Just think of spring, which comes every year and brings bustling life out of a dark winter.”
The concert program will also include – Anne Dudley: Pie Jesu, Anne Dudley: Crossing the bar and Ola Gjeilo: Song of the Universal.
