Dave Dobbyn Releases Tribute to Pike River 29



Dave Dobbyn Releases Tribute to Pike River 29

A live recording of ‘This Love’, Dave Dobbyn’s moving tribute to the Pike River 29, is released on July 25. The first performance of the piece featuring the Orpheus Choir of Wellington and Wellington Young Voices, was recorded by Radio NZ Concert at a concert attended by members of the miners’ bereaved families

Before writing the song Dobbyn spent time in Greymouth with the families of the miners. He felt their overwhelming grief. “I was very moved by their strength of community upon such a heavy loss of life. It spoke of a shared deeper love that survives in hope”

The song was commissioned by the Orpheus Choir with choral arrangement by conductor Mark Dorrell. Also performing are Mark Vanilau (piano), Jo Barus (bass), Ross Burge (drums), Chris Clark (cornet).
