Ox mountain was covered by trees

author of text

Originally scored for three singers and small orchestra, Ox mountain was covered by trees (1990) was written to commemorate the life and sudden death of Kent Opera, an inspirational force in the English artistic landscape. The text, from the (4th century BC) Confucian commentator Mencius, muses on the long term effect of continually cutting things down.
