Nine Figures on a Hill

In the scenario for Family of Man the work of photographer Ken Heyman, anthropologist Margaret Mead and sculptor Barbara Hepworth are drawn together.
Collaborative Elements

Nine Figures offers many opportunities for collaboration with different media and for the community that might surround performers or performances. A coming together with photographic images of 'the family' is a major feature of the oratorio Family of Man and can equally be imagined for Nine Figures. Collaborations with local artists, actors, dancers, poets and writers who might create interludes or site specific illustration or interpretation can be imagined. Equally, the work has potential as a piece for recording and new media, particularly web broadcasting.

In 2003 the publisher's Schott & Co prepared a new edition of Priaulx Rainier's Requiem that featured an optional keyboard part for organ. In 2013 Tonality Systems Press released a new edition of Nine Figures on a Hill with an optional keyboard part, but for the composer's favoured continuo instrument, the electric piano. Able to double as a rehearsal aid, this keyboard part aims to provide a subtle backdrop colour to the choral texture. It does not have to been adhered to slavishly, but more in the manner of a continuo ‘shadow', much in the same spirit as found in Nigel Morgan's The Heavens are Telling for SSATB and keyboard.
