Distance (low voice with piano)

by Clare Maclean (2013)

Work Overview

The text of this song describes an experience of depression, in the form of a sonnet. The use of blackbird song in the music provides a reference both to the world that passes by and to the divine, as a sign of its constant presence in, and yet distance from, the world we inhabit.
