Programme Note

Blist's Hill (2009)
for baritone and piano

Blist’s Hill was recorded for The NMC Songbook by Stephan Loges (baritone) and Iain Burnside (piano), and subsequently released by NMC Recordings in 2009.

Blist’s Hill sets a new poem by writer Simon Christmas in which a reflection on the relentless passing of history is triggered by a young boy’s bored shape-scrawling in the Shropshire earth.

Julian Philips, 2023
