Baritone & Piano
Murmuron, a song cycle for Baritone Voice and Piano sets Menna Elfyn’s poem of the same name. The search for stillness and peace, with oneself and the world around us, is something that I have been interested in for a while, and the text of Murmuron explores this idea of meditation and awareness. Musically, the vocal line is purposely laid bare, without florid ornamentation, in order to let the quiet poetic beauty inherent in the Welsh language shine through.
