Evensong

composer

 
Evensong started as an exercise in moving a particular chord shape around and writing a really simple melody over the top. The resultant, almost hymnal, effect lent itself perfectly to a string quartet, a format which I have been working with for a number of years now.

The composer writes: 'Evensong started as an exercise in moving a particular chord shape around and writing a really simple melody over the top. The resultant, almost hymnal, effect lent itself perfectly to a string quartet, a format which I have been working with for a number of years now.'
