Travelling Tales (2010)
Cantata for SATB, youth choir, piano (or piano duet and percussion). Duration c.18 minutes
Travelling Tales: tales of travel, in our imagination and in reality: mysterious travellers from unknown lands, journeys by train, by sea, and on horse-back, and visions of the future.
