|12th June 2015||Danae Eleni soprano, Jonathan Dods,organ (First London performance), St Michael and All Angels Church Bedford Park,London. 12.30pm
Composer's note: In Summer 1994 I was staying in a beautiful little turreted chateau in Lozere with my friends the Deschamps, whose daughter Isabelle is a poet. In the grounds I came across a tiny ancient chapel with a tiny harmonium and a stone carving of a mediaeval ancestor - un gisant. I asked Isabelle about it and she told me she had written a poem about it. I went back to the chapel where I composed this setting of the poem as a song for soprano and harmonium. It was not performed until 2015 when Danae asked about it and gave a first performance in Berlin.
