A reflective, melodic study exploiting a wide pitch range within a flexible tempo. In Martin Bussey’s chamber opera, Mary’s Hand, the movement ‘Soul Song’, from which most of the material here is taken, reflects Mary Tudor’s deeply held faith which ultimately blinds her to political reality. Expressive appoggiaturas and long-phrased melodies carry he musical sense of this piece.
