Asia Premiere of Paul Mealor’s Requiem.
Chosen Charity – The Samaritan Befrienders
Whilst we were in rehearsals in New York, Paul told us that whilst he was writing this piece, two of his close friends had committed suicide within a short time of each other. His music and poetry are reflective of this experience as the themes of forgiveness and peace run throughout the Requiem. His experience resonated with a number of the chorus and for many of us in Hong Kong as there has been an increasing awareness of the effect of suicide and depression in our society.
When Paul kindly gave the Cecilian Singers permission to sing the piece, it was a natural choice for us to choose a charity supporting suicide awareness: The Samaritan Befrienders.

Thank you to our sponsors – it is a significantly more complex concert than we normally host in Spring and we have been fortunate to gain their support.
