"This programme is an attempt to reconstruct in sound the spiritualistic vision of Death and Eternity. It is conceived as a dream of Death. Using the montage process of his earlier programmes, 'The Dreams' and 'Amor Dei', the author has arranged in settings of electronic sound a collection of voices recorded from life. There are four movements." "Actuality" voices recorded in co-operation with the Old People's Welfare Council, Hornsey."


After the programme you can listen to 20 minutes of silence where there is asked to reflect on the subject.
