Fall and Resurrection tries to encompass, in brief glimpses, the events which have taken place since the beginning of time, and before time. The work begins in total silence, in the Paradise of God. This work should ideally be performed in a building with a large acoustic. This work is dedicated to HRH The Prince of Wales.
