...the brightness of snow
Duration: 10 minutes
Re-working, as a stand-alone movement, of the last movement of Symphony No.3 "Fire in the Snow".
"Bright, from fields where the snow lies thick,
From sunk fields to the latch's click
You come; and your eyes, most watchful, glow,
Seeing in the firelight the brightness of snow."
(extract from Fire in the Snow by Vernon Watkins)
