This short piece was commissioned by The New Zealand Doctors’ Orchestra for a premiere at their annual concert in Dunedin, June, 2019. It aims to capture in music the ethical and selfless ethos that doctors aspire to in their profession, as exemplified by the Hippocratic Oath. The music is hymn-like in style but with more contemporary harmonies.
