Based on research of original music sung by incarcerated inmates in  Holocaust concentration camps, this 40-minute cantata is an emotional,  musical journey through one of the bleakest episodes in human history.  Working from translations of original Polish materials found in the  archives of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington,  D.C. and starting with just a single line of melody, McCullough has  fashioned a haunting choral tribute to the 6 million Jews who were  systematically persecuted and murdered as well as to the millions of  other individuals the Nazi Party classified as “undesirables,” including  Poles, Romanian gypsies, homosexuals, transsexuals, political  opponents, religious dissidents, the mentally ill and the physically  disabled. What emerges from the insanity of one of history’s worst  examples of man’s inhumanity to man is a sense of music’s life-affirming  powers.
