LIBERA NOS is, to the best of our knowledge, the very first multi-faith oratorio to be performed 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 is to convey and unite the traditional beliefs and spiritual messages of the world's largest 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.
Polo Piatti said: “The oratorio’s main objective is to convey a simple message: as long as people remain segregated from each other, the world will continue to be an unjust and unhappy place. Only by looking for common ground and universal similarities, we will be able to find understanding, and in doing so, contribute to a better life for all of us on this planet.”
We welcome you to experience the world premiere of this significant work. With over 150 performers on stage, this will be an unforgetable experience that you will treasure forever.
