Songs of Ice and Snow

A girl dances on an icy street, women in the Soviet era queue on icy pavements for the last of the bread, and an elderly lacemaker continues to work, but her memories dissolve like snowflakes settling on the ocean. Three settings of poems by Gregory Warren Wilson composed for mezzo soprano and saxophone quartet.

The songs were premiered in 2023 as part of the Late Music series of concerts in York with mezzo soprano Frances Gregory joining the Delta Saxophone Quartet.

The final song in the collection, ‘Snow and A Dovecote’, features on the latest album by the Delta Saxophone Quartet, ‘Late Music’
