Between Blue Mirrors

Stout, Alastair

About the work

The piece was commissioned to celebrate the Tall Ships Race in Shetland during 1999. It is based on a melody in the style of a traditional slow air which transforms itself during the work and depicts various sea scapes from raging storms and surging swells to mysterious, fog-shrouded still waters.The text, by Jonathan Lennox, describes sailors and their vessels battling against the elements, but also explores the beauty and wonders found in the deep oceans.

First Performance: Lerwick Choral Society, May 1999
