In the Bindery, an act of resistance turns desolation into hope. Lisa Maza as The Weaver leads The Quire, now bound and gagged, as they hum “In Consolation”, adapted by composer Peta Williams from Brahms Alto-Rhapsodie, Opus 53.

And the punters say: “…when they sang the main chorale melody – my heart went straight into my throat or was it my throat went to my heart?? such glorious music….”

    Glorious music indeed; a beautiful adaptation by Peta. It was an emotional moment for the singers too.
