Nigel Collins reimagines the requiem

From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 6 June 2021

Think requiem and something like Mozart's unfinished one may well come to mind. But a new spoken word and musical show is reimagining the requiem, both the text and the music. Five Wellington poets have written work based around Epilogue, and a group of musicians is creating scores that relate to each poem. There's also some Old English being thrown in for good measure. Nigel Collins is one of the musicians working on Epilogue that will be performed for the first time as part of Wellington's Loemis Festival later this month.
