Aditi Singers Premiere

On the 21st June the Aditi Singers will be premiering my SATB setting of an anonymous 9th century Old English poem, ‘The Wayfarer’. I found the text in a lecture given by Jorge Luis Borges, and have tried to reflect some of the austere beauty present in the poem and the music of that time. The concert is in Christ Church Southampton as part of the Freemantle Arts festival, and will also feature works by Tallis, Wilbye and Macmillan.
