Mary Ann Joyce

Cantata for the Children of Terezin

Contents: Featuring two works for orchestra. The text of Cantata for the Children of Terezin, uses poems written by children incarcerated at the Terezin concentration camp during the WW II. By shining a light on the thoughts of children in the camps, the composer hopes to bring about global awareness of these atrocities committed in the hope that these acts will never happen again. Likewise, Aceldama highlights horrors of the 21st century, serving as a meditation on human suffering occurring on such a large scale where its enormity is incomprehensible.
