Music of Social Awareness
The Wound set to lyrics by Chryssy Tintner concerning the need to properly acknowledge and honour the indigenous people of Australia. Video of live performance on youTube: (https://youtu.be/-SEaDFYwoDU). The text, written on Australia Day of 2018, implores us to consider the need for a memorial to Indigenous Australians who have fallen in war and in custody. Before healing can take place we need to acknowledge the wound. Sung by Wendy Dixon with instrumentalists: Rachel Westwood - violin, Matthew Farrell - cello, Janine Grantham - flute, Gregory van der Struik - trombone, Edwin Diefes - tuba Michael Hugh Dixon - horn.
