John Gibson’s chamber opera tells the Old Testament story of Judith, who led the Jewish nation against the mighty Assyrian army of Holofernes. It is performed by the Opera Group of Cork School of Music in a setting for four solo voices, chorus, narrator and chamber ensemble (including the composer as pianist). It was written to mark the 25th anniversary of Cork Peace Week and recorded live in April 2002.
