Echo (2022)

for SSAATTBB voices

approx. duration: 7 minutes

composed for VOCES8

a setting of 'Echo' by Christina Rosetti

Echo is a setting of Christina Rosetti's poem of the same title. Set for eight voices, the music explores the deep sense of desire and longing in the poem. The three stanzas are set as individual verses; each with sensitivity to the tonal shifts throughout the poem. The intimate third verse allows the voice of the persona to speak sincerely through the solo voices of two sopranos, accompanied by hushed mourning in the lower voices.

Listen

Performed by VOCES8 scholars at St. Bride's Church October 22, 2022
