Electric Requiem – God Save the Queen 電子安魂曲:皇后萬歲 | DVD

The Queen’s Pier in Hong Kong was closed and demolished by the government in 2007 amidst
considerable objection from the public. Like many other historical landmarks in the city, the former
royal dock built in the colonial times had to make way for urban development. This incident inspired
avant-garde Hong Kong musician Samson Young to compose and direct the experimental piece
Electric Requiem: God Save the Queen. It was later performed live in 2009 by the City Chamber
Orchestra of Hong Kong with chorus by the Hong Kong Voices. The video portion features
iconic actress Helena Law Lan as Her Majesty, a role she had played in films and on television
numerous times before.
