When she came misty through the morning
About the work
when she came misty through the morning takes its title from a line of Philip Sealey’s poem road, about the destruction of the piece of land – once known as Twyford Down, to make part of the M3!and to Celtic tracks that are strungover lost Twyford Down likethe threads of a ruptured loom,its damask cheek ripped by thosewho knew too well the price of things,who stripped the thin gauzefrom the grass green girl,when she came misty through the morning,and with a butcher’s knifesplit her swelling, chalk-white breastin two� Philip Sealey
The instruments are divided into nostalgic sounds, dark sounds, hard sounds and white noise. Some suggestions as to which instrument makes which sound are given by the composer. However, the ultimate decisions should be left to the discretion of the players.
