I started to read about people who had been afflicted with extreme amnesiac states, so basically people who had extreme amnesia, loss of memory. One thing that seems to be in common is a kind of state of awakening, a feeling of having woken up from something, maybe a coma or a kind of sense of suddenly being alive. And this kind of feeling really kind of permeates this new piece. (David Fennessy on Ne reminiscaris)
The Chamber Choir Ireland recently talked to David Fennessy about his latest choral composition Ne Reminiscaris, which they premièred this April.
The work will be performed on 23 May in Belfast and on the following day in Dublin as part of Paul Hilliers and the Chamber Choir Irelands “The Great Mystery” tour.
