Oratorio based on Charles Darwin: 'On the Origin of Species'
'The Lapse of Time'. Part IV (of V): 'Extinction' (Homage to the extinct species)
Music by Bjørn Morten Christophersen
Lyrics from Charles Darwin "On the Origin of Species", adapted by the composer

PART IV: EXTINCTION
Like the branching of a great tree
from a single stem
extinction
widening the intervals
extinction
widening the gaps
between species

All living species
connected
with parent-species now extinct
connected
with more ancient species

Inconceivably great number
of intermediate and transitional links
between living and extinct
Such have lived upon this earth

This wonderful relationship
between the dead and the living

Berit Norbakken solset, Soprano
Frank Havrøy, baryton
Kristiansund Sinfonietta + enforcements
Ensemble Dali
Eirik Sørborg, conductor
