As one who has slept
The earliest piece in this anthology, As one who has slept (1996), comes almost at the end of this long chain of works. It deals, in an extraordinarily transparent fashion and with the simplest of musical means, with Christ’s harrowing of Hell: the period, commemorated on Holy Saturday, when the agony of the Crucifixion is behind us and we are in a state of expectancy before the proclamation of the Resurrection.
