A Swan, A Man

A Swan, A Man (2009)
baritone and piano

Commissioned by the Edmund Blunden Society, this dramatic song, to words by Edmund Blunden, vividly responds to the poet’s memories of the First World War as he meditates by a village mill-pond. It was first performed by William Coleman (baritone) and Anna Tillbrook (piano) at St James Piccadilly, and subsequently at the 2010 Malvern Song Festival.
