Illumina, a new work by Farr is to premiere at the Christchurch Arts Festival 2009 with Helen Charlton (soprano soloist), Grant Hutchinson (director) and the Jubilate Singers at Christchurch Cathedral on the Square, Christchurch, NZ, 8 August 2009.

Farr?s new work Illumina uses text by two New Zealand poets: ?Soft leaf falls of Light? by Apirana Taylor and ?Light? by Jenny Bornholdt. Taylor is published and performs internationally as a Maori poet, story-teller, playwright, novelist, actor, painter and musician.
