Wayfaring Stranger

'Babylon' is a 30-minute piece for choir and percussion based around a libretto composed of texts from American folk sources (primarily recordings of Alan and John Lomax), combined with sacred texts all on themes of journeying and solitude. The work features three percussionists and a number of solos, including a soprano solo, alto solo, baritone solo and a number of short choral solos throughout the work. Contact Sarah for details or a perusal score.

The piece was premiered by the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir, University of Aberdeen Percussion Ensemble, and conductor Michael Bawtree on 1 March 2018.
