for high voice and pianoThe words for this cycle are drawn from poems by Philip Larkin. There are three lyrics about the natural world and two typically down-beat townscapes, framed and linked with a setting of the visionary final lines fo the title poem. The whole suggests a musical form as close to a Baroque cantata as to later song cycles.show more

About Anthony Powers

Born in London in 1953, Anthony Powers studied at Oxford, in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, and at York with David Blake and Bernard Rands. He taught for two years at Dartington College of Arts before being appointed Composer-in-Residence to Southern Arts. Since then he has moved to Herefordshire where he continues to divide his time between composing and teaching, currently at Cardiff University, where he has been Professor of composition since 2004. Powers's music is characterized by strong architectonic frameworks that support a language of poetic intensity and magical sonorities. His music often takes its inspiration from the tension between different states, be they physical properties, landscapes, seasons or emotions.show more
