Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I started to envisage a work like the sorting of blurry musical fragments of recollection in my memory and things I was listening to. True to the way many composers admit to conceiving a new work while listening to an old one, I was finding new music amidst a very old, grand creation, viz. Monteverdi's Vespers. Vespro is perhaps described best being the restoration of an old building, where old stone buttresses mesh with glass and steel. You can excavate shards of the Vespers in the very fabric of the work; but you can also very clearly see it amidst the central structures. And so, the work is an entirely new imagination; an evening prayer; a dream.
