Product details

Holy Dreaming is the result of being asked to write a musical companion for Ross Edwards' Mass of the Dreaming: 'Missa Alchera'. Ross Edwards' music has been hugely formational for my own artistic voice, having provided inspiration and sanctuary for me ever since my teen years. Creating something worthy of companionship with the Edwards Mass, simultaneously honouring it and bringing forth something original, has been a lofty summit to scale.

Holy Dreaming has come about through my deep meditation on the words of 'A Thanksgiving for Australia' by Reverend Lenore Parker, examining them, turning them over, and searching for the natural dances within words and phrases. I feel I've composed a duet between my own music and the inherent music I've heard within the text.
