Anthony Ritchie's Symphony No. 4 was written for the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and dedicated to "those in Christchurch who have suffered in the [2010/2011] earthquakes". The work's principal point of reference is a publication entitled The Way of the Cross, which brought together images of the 14 controversial sculptures that Llew Summers crafted for the Christchurch Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in 2000.
