Commissioned by the Norway’s Nidaros Cathedral Girls' Choir for their 20th anniversary, this moving Requiem features jazz trumpeter Arve Henriksen with organ, girls’ choir and community choir. Loosely based on the requiem mass, Andrew Smith’s piece is a reflection on the tragic massacre of 22 July 2011 on Utøya in Norway. The first half will feature a duo from Arve Henriksen and keyboard player Ståle Storløkken.
