Notes

We Have Found a Better Land was commissioned by BBC Radio 3 as part of Mark’s residency at the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

The composition of We Have Found a Better Land was supported by a residency in Patagonia funded by British Council Wales as part of the Patagonia 150 project.

The first performance was given by the BBC National Chorus of Wales conducted by Adrian Partington at Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff on November 15th 2015.

The six choral movements of We Have Found a Better Land explore texts relating to Patagonia, in particular the indigenous Tehuelche people and the Welsh Colony, or Y Wladfa, that settled in Argentina in 1865.
