Programme Note

How They Creep takes the second stanza from E. A. Poe's A Dream Within A Dream. I have embarked on a piece that has at it's heart the combination of two voices and how they are supported and at times directed by the instruments around them. I have been largely influenced by Benjamin Britten's Canticles whilst writing this piece and see How They Creep as a testing ground of ideas for a larger piece, Wakening Shadow, for Glyndebourne in 2013.
