Just recently completed, this extended work  commissioned by Dr. Robyn Williams AM, draws its inspiration from the iconic speech delivered in 1992 by the then Prime Minister, the Honourable Paul Keating. The libretto by Pamela Traynor, is a wonderful distillation of this profound document which resonates as powerfully today as it did 26 years ago.

The music reflects and amplifies the need to acknowledge truthfully and with courage  this nation's history  and its treatment of its first people.

The work is about 35 minutes in length and is scored for large orchestra, choir and 2 soloists (soprano & bass).
