Called To Be Happy

Called To Be Happy, a new cantata by Peter Rose and Anne Conlon for young women seeking to find their way in the world, is written in honour of Mary Ward, a seventeenth-century English woman of courage and steadfast determination.

The cantata, written for Narrator, Soloists, SSA Choir and Orchestra, draws parallels between Mary Ward’s life experiences and those of young women today, and was first performed by the musicians of Maria Ward-Schule, Mainz (Germany) in March 2022.
