The work takes its text from a collection of poems by Chris Wallace-Crabbe. Chris kindly allowed me to take selected lines from various works from New and Selected Poems:
If you can slip your fingernail under reality's near edge,
you then begin to hear those other things.
Long gone melody
The air vibrating with fragility
Texture delicate as lace
An edge, the edge of something but
Is it in Space or Time?
Approving mystery with all my heart.
Instrumentation: SATB choir, piano.
Duration: 7 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by Gondwana Chorale.
A DVD of the premiere performance at National Choral School 2016 is available through Gondwana Choirs.
