For Baritone Voice & Piano.
Oxford Contemporary Repertoire.
A beautifully constructed song-cycle set to poems from Christina Rosetti to W.B.Yeats and the sixteenth century French poet Pontus de Tyard. Exploring the themes of yearning and longing at the end of a love affair, the subject of the texts focuses largely on a desire for rest and even oblivion. The music responds accordingly, ranging from the bright and chromatic to simple, poignant settings of folk-inspired tunes.
