During the Srebrenica massacre - Europe's largest genocide since the Second World War - over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were murdered in a single day. Against the background of increasing anti-Islamic sentiment and rhetoric in numerous countries, composer Samuel Gray wants us to remember the atrocities that have been committed against Muslims in recent European history so as to encourage a more balanced view of Muslim people than the contemporary diatribe that casts all Muslims as terrorists and extremists.
Commissioned by the Orkest de Ereprijs, the Netherlands

Notes on pronunciation of Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian: For simplicity's sake, please pronounce the vowels exactly as you would Italian vowels. All the vowels in the phrases used here are long. The accented syllable in each word is marked with a tilde (´) above the vowel to assist you. The grapheme [ j] is pronounced the same as [ j] in Dutch and German. [ž] is a voiced fricative, the same as the [g] in the French "courage".
