About the work
To commemorate Easter in 2008, St Helier’s Presbyterian Church commissioned 15 New Zealand composers and artists to create works in response to one of the stations of the cross.
My piece, not programmatic, refers to the ninth station, where Jesus stumbles and falls under the weight of the cross he is forced to carry to his crucifixion.
