On first reading Ann Walker’s A Cornish Dozen I immediately felt its musical potential, and felt I would be able to provide a musical setting of many of the poems which would complement rather than impose. I eventually wrote a set of five songs for chorus and organ, which hopefully enhance the ideas already present in the poems, as well as presenting something of the themes and dualities that run throughout the whole ‘dozen’.

Songs from A Cornish Dozen was commissioned by Ann Walker and is dedicated to her and the Sine Nomine International Touring Choir.
