This song cycle was commissioned by Christopher Marshall for inclusion in his chamber music series, Christopher’s Classics, in 2009. It was written for Catrin Johnsson, mezzo soprano, Serenity Thurlow, viola, and Rachel Fuller, piano. The four songs to words by the commissioner himself explore the nature of words and their use in human relationships.
