Song of June

First line:
author of text

Jonathan Harvey was described by fellow-composer, Michael Berkeley as wearing two hats: the predictable type of English, establishment composer, whose face fitted with, for example, that world in which his own son entered as a chorister at Winchester Cathedral, and also a rather unconventional world of the experimental sounds of electronics-plus-speech. Song of June is a setting of Wilfred Owen’s 1914 poem about youth and freedom and it exudes spiritual dimensions of light and love, using contrapuntal techniques, in a vocally wispy treatment, using tintinnabulation, drones and repeated speech-effects.
