Workshop of recent work 'Gethsemane' for unaccompanied choir by the BBC Singers on Monday 18th April, 2016.

Gethsemane is a setting of Annette von Droste Hulshoff's poem of the same title, which depicts Christ in the garden of Gethsemane.

This highly evocative text inspired me to compose a setting which incorporates elements of free notation and expressive harmonic textures.
