Those other things : for SATB voices and piano / Katy Abbott ; text: Chris Wallace-Crabbe.

Library shelf no. 782.5542/ABB 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

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?

Edges go.

Approving mystery with all my heart.
