Commissioned for the Royal Academy of Music’s 2ooth anniversary, Red Anemones is a short setting of poetry by the 12th Century Persian poet Jala al-din Rumi.

Your fragrance fills the meadow.
Your mouth appears in a red anemone,
But when those reminders leave,
My own lips open,
And in whatever I say,
I hear you.
