Sun Soul

First line:
Waking from sleep so long
author of text

Sun Soul is one of two concert pieces written for Aldeburgh Voices in 2011. Bardsley’s text explores the wonders of sunrise and sunset and captures something of the corporeal nature of light. Parry’s response embraces the tenderness of dawn and dusk, and the majesty of the day.
