The Second Key

Davies, Tansy

About the work

The Second Key, for voice and ensemble, explores a text by 12th Century troubadour Guilhelm X. Clouds of

glissandi drift and separate to reveal semi-improvised instrumental sounds and figurations; the scene is set for

a song that appears, then dissolves back into the mysterious landscape.
