Three Byzantine Hymns

In 2016 Cantata Dramatica commissioned Solfa Carlile to compose choral settings of three highly atmospheric Greek poems dating from 4th - 6th century AD.  The poems were translated from the Greek by Nick Pitts-Tucker who chose to interleave them with texts from early Greek hymns.  The result is a seamless transition between secular and sacred which adds new dimensions to the story behind each poem.
