The Darkling Thrush: Polaris Vocal Ensemble

I recently composed The Darkling Thrush for Polaris Vocal Ensemble. It's a setting of the poem by Thomas Hardy for SSAA choir and harp and the piece was premiered by the group and harpist Ellie Turner in February 2019; click on the SoundCloud player to listen to their concert performance.

The SATB choir and harp version of the piece was shortlisted for Bristol Choral Society's 2020 Mary Otty composition prize.
