Song Description
My first encounter with the Lake District came from the very first book I borrowed from the University of Aberdeen’s library: The Illustrated Lake Poets by Molly Lefebure. Alongside the poetry of Coleridge, Southey and Wordsworth, the watercolour paintings included in the book’s glossy pages presented sparkling blue waters, shadowy ridges and shimmering meadows ablaze with flowers. Perhaps the most striking point in the poem is Wordsworth’s choice of the word ‘dwelt’. It is a reminder that a maiden that he once knew was among the many walking the earth, and yet, all that remains is the somewhat hazy memory of the deceased. This piece is dedicated to Jennifer Taylor, a wonderful friend who has very kindly included this piece as a premiere alongside her own music at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Aberdeen’s Noon Recital, 25 August 2018.
