I met a traveller from an antique land
author of text

Ozymandias was written for the Rodolfus choir in 2015. It was premiered by the choir in a concert at St Dunstan-in-the-West, London, in July 2015. The text is taken from Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem of the same name, first published in 1818. The poet tells a parabolic tale of an ancient king’s decline from greatness to near obscurity, through the discovery of a broken statue in the desert. The passing of time rips away all pretensions of power or fame, and leaves only small fragments from which posterity will judge.
