Editorial Reviews

Review

A paean of and to hope, a proclamation of shared humanity ... this is a serious piece, but infinitely rewarding. --Gramophone

Fiercely paced and vividly dramatic, it s a huge sing and a grateful one. Blackford has proceeded fearlessly,
intuitively, but with confidence in his own craft, which is considerable. Not In Our Time is a terrific piece whose textual content may
cause choirs and audiences to think: is this for us? Emphatically it is. --The Telegraph

Product Description

Not In Our Time was commissioned by the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus to mark their centenary in 2011. It takes the attack on the World Trade Center as the focal point of a work that explores the theme of war declared in the name of religion, from the speeches of George Bush and Barack Obama to the 11th-century texts of the First Crusade. This poignant juxtaposition of texts, alongside the vast emotional range of the symphony orchestra, gives voice to the complex questions that surround these events.

I had the honor of performing in the U.S. premiere of this oratorio on May 27, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois. It is a profound work with a message that the world needs to hear and heed. The music varies from sad to chilling to exciting. I cannot praise this work enough. Please listen to the excerpts, particularly "Vexilla" and "Lucis". You will never forget this amazing work by Richard Blackford.
