Holmes, Leonie: Aquae Sulis 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The worship of the Celtic Goddess Sulis and the Roman Goddess Minerva gave rise to the cult of Sul-Minerva at the ancient springs situated in Southwest England. A visit to the site summons up a variety of underground imaginings – dark, steaming pools, slowly dripping water and faster running streams, ancient supplications, sacrifice, curses and prayers, fertility and healing. This work for winds, strings, harp and vibraphone, was written as a response to these imaginings.

    Aquae Sulis was one of three finalists in the APRA SOUNZ Contemporary Award, 2014.
