Programme Notes
Colin Matthews Prometheus – Fragment This tiny fragment of Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound, sung in Greek, was written for the Holst Singers in January 1989, and is intended to be the first of a short sequence of choruses. The ocean wave moans for him, the depths weep, the cavernous black world of the dead mourns, and the springs of pure flowing rivers weep for his piteous pain Colin Matthews
