Music to hear was written for Olivia Hunt. Olivia has a particular affinity with the works of Shakespeare and so I decided to set his 8th sonnet, one of the few that mentions music. The writing is lyrical and covers a wide vocal range, but also seeks to paint the text as vividly as possible.

This was premiered at opening night of the 2016 North Wales Music Festival by Olivia Hunt with the composer at the piano.
