Instrumentation: SATB Choir
Duration: 4' 30"
Commissioned by Choir & Organ Magazine and wirtten for the University of St Andrews' St Salvator's Chapel Choir.
Arcadia takes its inspiration from a 16th Century poem entitled ‘Of the Day Estivall’ by Alexander Hume, in which Hume paints an image of a long summer’s day in Scotland. This song is set in the poem’s original Scots dialect and attempts to capture Hume’s evocative imagery in a musical context. Thusly, the title Arcadia is derived from the utopian and pastoral connotations contained within Hume’s text.
