Notes from the composer:
Invictus is the title of a poem written by British poet William Ernest Henley in 1875. Henley was recovering in a hospital at the time, having undergone a foot amputation caused by a bone disease.
This poem was very dear to Nelson Mandela, who often read it for comfort throughout his years in prison during the South African apartheid.
I composed this piece for Norway's Defrost Youth Choir, conducted by Thomas Caplin.
Here is the text of this magnificent and touching poem:
