Helen Gifford

viola and piano (2018)

Copied and edited by Kim Bastin

"What to make of my transcription for viola and piano of the unearthly music for singer and instruments that was created by my ancestress? Working from fragments of song and drifts of strange sounds, I thought that I heard ritual passages, then some witchery followed by a bit of prophesy. Not foreseen was the misrepresentation of her music by a descendant - no foretelling the future or raising higher powers here" - Helen Gifford
