In the silence of the night
Ruth Byrchmore’s In the silence of the night comprises three settings of poems by Christina Rossetti. Rossetti’s work has been a lifelong source of inspiration to Byrchmore, particularly in terms of its bleakness, passion, and integrity. The meditative, sparse, and slow unfolding of ‘Echo’ pours into the impassioned homophonic plea at the opening of ‘Song’. ‘Mirage’ adds a restless, linear full-stop to the whole.
