This hypnotic piece is lovely to sing once everyone has settled into the groove. It was written as a backing for spoken poetry where I wanted to encapsulate the feeling of an endless journey through a winter landscape. It’s one of my favourite pieces and when all the (simple and repeating) lines are sung together it makes something that’s far greater than the sum of its parts.
4 repeated lines working over 2 phrase lengths so the song goes in and out of sync with itself.
Winter fields and winter sky
And winter trees and winter light
Snow on snow on snow on snow
