Two songs of Sound and Music is for soprano and marimba and was written in 2014. Its duration is nearly six and a half minutes.
Words are taken from a set of poems about musical sounds. The first is a setting of ‘Perplexed Music’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning where the musical symbolisms are a metaphor for life’s experiences. The marimba player is also asked to play wind-chimes in this song.
The second song is a setting of ‘Tune Me’ by Christina Rossetti which asks God for us to unite and live in one harmony; to flee the flesh and tune into Him.
