This piece was commissioned by local philanthropist Sue Kirby in memory of her late husband, Judge Jack Goldring.
Also featuring ‘Nothing is Forever’ by local composer Matthew Hindson, Ann Carr-Boyd’s lively ‘Fandango’, Moya Henderson’s spiritual Aboriginal themes in ‘The Dreaming: Utterly Sacred: In Honour of 40,000 Years’; Andrew Ford’s evocative, sparkling ‘Bright Shiners’, and ‘Blue Poles’ (from The Manhattan Epiphanies); and the sublime and deeply moving ‘Elegy in Memoriam Rupert Brooke’ by Frederick Septimus Kelly.
