Philip Joy - Seeking Stillness

Other Information

First performed by the composer in a concert of unaccompanied cello music in Buttsbury Church in 2012.

The programme of the work is as follows:

"An agitated person arrives outside the church seeking stillness. Her mind is full and overclocked, thoughts restlessly moving from one thing to another. She opens the door which clunks shut behind and enters immediately into an environment of peace and solitude;  her mind has space to soar and settle, and all the stressed-out thoughts which previously troubled her find a new place and resolution in the atmosphere of harmony and quietness in this ancient church."
