About the work

Written with numerous avant garde techniques, wholly at the service of the expression, and used in a totally practical way, making the singers’ job easy and enjoyable. Players need good concentration through both the very slow music and then rapidly changing ideas. Important to include text and translation in the programme – conductor has an excellent programme note.

First Performance: May 1975, St Mark’s Church, Mitcham

Origin

Merton Festival
