When Auckland Choral was asked to sing at the funeral of a highly regarded and long-standing member of the choir, I offered to compose something special for the service. It needed to be a piece that could be quickly learnt. Blessing was the result. The text is by Wellington-based poet Anne Powell who is a member of the Catholic order of the Cenacle Sisters.
Blessing is a short poem of healing for those '…who walk the earth', and draws on images of the natural world – the light, the sea, and the wind. The piece is dedicated to the memory of Peter Gibbons, who particularly enjoyed the outdoors.
Dedicated to Peter Gibbs
