Errollyn Wallen (OM 5, OM 20) is a multi award-winning Belize-born British composer and performer. Her prolific output includes twenty-two operas and a large catalogue of orchestral, chamber, and vocal works which are performed and broadcast throughout the world. About the piece, composer writes, “These songs (words and music) sprang unbidden to me and began as a secret part of my musical life; they were written for my own pleasure and for me to sing. I have been amazed at the journey they have subsequently been on."
