About this performance

Immortal Diamond borrows its title from a poem of Gerard Manley Hopkins, called That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and the Comfort of Resurrection. This beautiful poem, full of extraordinary sound pictures, provides the inspiration for a sound world in which Lisa Gerrard will range freely, one that speaks of the power of spiritual love and renewal. The music will ebb and flow slowly like a tide, the orchestra and sixteen wordless singers embedded within it will wrap around her voice, occasionally falling away to the ruminations of the piano as it continues accompanying a song that—in a sense—has no beginning and no end.

Duration: approx. 55 minutes
