Programme Notes
This text is aspirational, replete with images of light. This is reflected in the clashing major seconds which are a frequent feature of the harmony, and the use of multiple grace notes which create sprays of sound around the central pitches. Both of these features are influenced by folk singing, specifically the heterophonic Psalms singing traditions on the Gaelic islands of Lewis and Harris of the West Coast of Scotland.
