Programme Note:

Voices in Silence reflects on a post-war world after the last gun has fallen silent, the sun rising on a creation oblivious to the self-destruction of mankind. Each movement builds a soliloquy on a single image; dawn on a devastated battle-field, frogs calling in a bomb crater, a bird whistling on a barbed wire fence, and finally a simple chorale. The piece was commissioned by the City of London Festival for Ashley Wass and first performed at the 2004 Festival.
