Upon Silence (Voice And Viols)

Books | Voice

Publisher: Faber Music
Composer: George Benjamin
Annette Morreau writes 'This is a remarkable work, a setting of Yeats’ Long-Legged Fly, where Benjamin has found a newly expressive sound world - rasping colours in rich dissonant chords, pizzicato and tremolo effects. And in his use of the voice in hesitant parlando style, the claustrophobic nature of the poem is decisively captured.'
