Crop Circle started life as a work for three voices. It is a setting of the rather desolate poem “Like Barley Bending” by Sara Teasdale (1884-1933). The poem's limited range of imagery suggested to me a restricted harmonic palette, the voice working against two other cyclical lines. The result is a sustained, hypnotic song against a constantly shifting backdrop.
Performed on the 28th April 2012.
