Verse for 8 voices or 8-part Choir (2001)

Text by Lao Tzu. SSAATTBB.

A tribute to Cornelius Cardew’s Great Learning paragraphs. At the time I composed this piece I was writing my masters thesis on the music of David Ahern, and feeling Cardew’s influence as I had when I studied Skempton’s music. This piece was commissioned and premiered by the C21 festival.

Download a sample of the score.

Please, have your say.
