This is a spiritual work and not a religious one.
Spirituality is all about asking questions while religion is all about giving answers. And I am not in the business of giving answers.
“Love And Compassion Are Necessities, Not Luxuries. Without Them,
Humanity Cannot Survive”
[The Dalai Lama XIV, The Art Of Happiness]
LIBERA NOS is, to the best of our knowledge, the very first multi-faith oratorio to be premiered anywhere in the world. This monumental work was written for five soloists, mixed choir, children’s choir, and full symphony orchestra.
Originally commissioned by Mr. Peter Armstrong Dip Theo, on behalf of Musica Sacra, the work took over three years to be researched and finally completed.
The main idea behind this oratorio was to convey and unite the traditional beliefs and spiritual messages of the following world religions: BUDDHISM, HINDUISM, JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY, and ISLAM.
LIBERA NOS ('Deliver Us' in Latin) is a very exciting and passionate major new work, comprising 60 original vocal and instrumental compositions structured into four main sections: CREATION, LAW & OBEDIENCE, END OF TIME, and RECONCILIATION & SALVATION.
It was born out of the belief that as long as people remain segregated from each other, the world will continue being a deeply divisive, unjust, and unhappy place. Only by looking for common ground and universal similarities can we find understanding and contribute to a better life for all of us on this planet.
We welcome you all to experience the world premiere of this very important work.
