Barbara White’s ‘My barn’ is inspired by a Japanese poem and explores the decay of sounds and the journey from turbulence to peace. Modern Africa is conjured up in Judith Weir’s exquisite song cycle, Nuits d’Afrique. Folk-song from Scotland bubbles up and courses through Blue Green Hill – evoking the twists and turns of traditional fiddle tunes. Estonian composer, Helena Tulve, recreates the movement of water in her evocative piece, Stream. Benjamin Graves’ Roche Rock, receiving its world premiere, is inpsired by the ancient chapel overlooking the village of Roche.
