This piece is taken from my Symphony; 'Genesis', the final movement and rearranged for choir and organ.
'Genesis' is a seven movement musical narrative dealing with the evolving evolution of life from the dawn of
time until today, the destructive nature of the human race and the political issues surrounding this negative
fact and the distant uncertain future.
By combining different musical techniques and styles, co-existing here side by side, I have found a way to
express my views of an ideal utopian world, of a society where everyone lives together in harmony and
peace. I have completed my musical narrative with a poem my mother wrote sometime before 1933, in a
time of deprivation and extreme hardship and to complete the symphony with a section from a psalm, the last
words; 'that mortal men may cause terror no more' as a plea to humanity. The poem is written in German and
describes the poverty and needs of simple everyday folk.
