'We Are Your Future" is the title of the compelling eleven minute cantata, composed by Barry Booth, who also conducted the orchestra and choir. The libretto, composed by Barry Fantoni, calls for a soprano and a rock singer as well as children's voices. As the title indicates, the song asks us all to consider the future of children everywhere in what seems to be an increasingly uncaring world, a point intentionally underlined by the choice of young musicians and singers who performed to perfection on the day.
"...a concert-like mélange or montage of glimpses, gestures, images, echoes, voices, phrases, memories, fragments of speech, song, and quotation. It consists of a plethora of signifiers that are often completely unconnected to any set or sequence of recognisably related signifieds in a represented world."
Heart Garden Cantata is a commissioned work performed by Wandsworth Borough Primary Schoolchildren, accompanied by a professional orchestra, on 5th July,2006, at Fairfield Concert Hall, Croydon, London.
