Fields of Poppies - A NZ Festival Concert

Concert organist Paul Rosoman performs in venues all over the world. Here in Wellington, the acoustics of St Mary of the Angels and the power and versatility of its Maxwell Fernie organ make this the perfect venue for his collaboration with Monarch Brass Collective – eight of New Zealand’s best brass and percussion players.

In 1916, writing home from the Great War, French organist Charles-Marie Widor recorded, “A piece of shrapnel fell on my table as I was writing my Salvum Fac.” Inspired by the perpetual link between music and war, Rosoman performs Widor’s magnificent work in the company of Bach, Vierne, Brahms and others. An evocative reflection on conflict and peace through music – whether as a call to war or a lament for the fallen.
