Winter Waits and Watches

A depiction of winter by the Lake on the Felbrigg NT estate.. This unaccompanied 3-part version captures the haunting silence of the frozen landscape and is for ladies choir. Synthesized version.

Winter waits and watches

Watches, watches

Still and silent o’er solid earth

Silent, silent,

Hush, Hush,

Hush o’er frozen lake.

Hoar frost covers branches

Suspended in the mist.

Silent, silent, silent.

Distant a curlew calls

Beckoning me to follow

While winter waits and watches

Watches, watches, watches.

Synthesized version with two violins and a flute.
