About

The song cycle The Floating Bride, The Crimson Village was written as part of my residency at the New Zealand School of Music in 2008. A casual conversation with writer Vincent O’Sullivan led to him writing fifteen poems inspired by the paintings of Marc Chagall. I set eleven of these for performance at the Adam Chamber Music Festival in Nelson 2009. While the original is for voice and piano I always had in mind orchestral sounds for the accompaniment.
