Composed for his daughter, From Night and Sweet Joy are companion pieces to Shade of Dreams, the culmination on his recent album Tender Symmetry, recorded at historic locations around the country.
“For a composer, writing music as a celebration for the birth of your own child seems like the most natural gift there could be. Less practical than woolly hats and blankets, but hopefully longer-lasting than flowers and chocolates. At a recording session in March 2017, at All Hallows Church Gospel Oak, the soprano Grace Davidson and a wonderful group of string players came together to record three songs, one of which, Shade of Dreams, became the final song on my last album Tender Symmetry; the other two became Songs for Eveline.”
