Port Arthur Requiem 1997 was the name on the top of a musical score sent to Tasmanian musician Alan Greenlees almost a quarter of a century ago, but it was not played until last year.
Port Arthur Requiem was written by musician and composer Graham Powning to honour those who were shot in the Port Arthur Massacre
The classical piece was written in 1997, a year after the shooting, but was only discovered after Powning’s death last year
It was performed last week by cor anglais player Alan Greenlees and was released for the first time today
The requiem was written by musician and composer Graham Powning to honour those who were shot at the Port Arthur Historical site in 1996.
A recording has been released today, 25 years on.
