A musical alert for today, June 29, in London:
Songs and Visions of Joy by English composer Janet Wheeler is to receive its first performance on Thursday 29 June 2017, 7.30pm, at Sing a Song of Joy, a summer concert to be given at St Mary's Old Church, Stoke Newington Church Street, London N16 9ES, UK by the women's choir Psallite, directed by Nancy Hadden. (...)
Of Songs and Visions of Joy, its composer Janet Wheeler writes: 'In compiling the libretto for this piece I took my cue from the choir's name, Psallite - sing praises - which features widely in the psalms. (...)
'The third movement sets a prose text adapted from a passage from Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. This contrasts two visions of happiness, one lying peacefully on the moors in the heat of the day, and the other rocking in a rustling green tree in the wind, with birdsong and the movement of nature all around. (Music & Vision)
