A chamber ensemble piece that reflects Holt's
passion for the visual arts and literature.
The Banshee according to legend is less a shape than a mournful screaming that haunts the Irish night and the Scottish Highlands.
Beneath the window of the visited house, she foretells the death of one of the family.
Banshee was commissioned by Melinda Maxwell and is dedicated to her and Richard Benjafield the percussionist at the first performance.
