composer: Nick Duggan
Text: Philip Duggan
The text, written by Philip Duggan at the request of the composer, deals with the age-old theme of death and whether the soul moves to a better place. The last section is in the nature of an extended coda, taking up almost one third of the whole work, suggesting a poignant but optimistic answer to the inherent question 'is there life after death?' This work concludes with a peaceful drawn out cadence which truly relaxes the spirit.
