2. MACEDON: By the waters of Babylon

    By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept … As for our harps, we hanged them up upon the trees that are therein. For they that led us away captive required of us then a song, saying “Sing us one of the songs of Sion” … “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”
    Many composers have set this heart-wrenching text, telling of the exile of a people from their homeland. JS Bach sets the poem as a solemn hymn, Palestrina as a multi-voiced motet.
    The text is no less potent in the 21st century than it was in 500 BCE. The Australian Chamber Choir has commissioned Australian composer, Tom Henry to write a new work on this theme.
