A song cycle for baritone, violin, cello, and piano
The theme of the work is the transcendence of frontiers - of geography, mortality, and human experience. It is about death, fighting for life, and, if that battle is lost, then losing it with pride and dignity.


  • I don't think of death
  • A patch of blackened earth
  • I was afraid
  • Our lives
  • I come from London
  • Trapped in crystal
  • I am nearly blind
