Using contemporary language and music, Re:Creation follows the biblical story of Creation across the breadth of human history from the opening verses of Genesis to the conclusion of the Revelation of St. John.
Seeking to inspire audiences who have listened to other resonances on the origins and destiny of life, Derek Wensley has compiled over 150 verses of Bilical text rendering it in accessible language to present its great themes to the contemporary listener.
Composed in 2007 by David Perkins and premiered at St John's, Smith Square, London in 2009, Re:Creation aims to stimulate deep responses which have held together faith and music to both touch souls and excite the senses.
