Composer's Notes

Composed in the height of the COVID-19 Lockdown in 2020, A Thousand Mornings draws inspiration from a poem by Mary Oliver of the same title. The short but evocative poem is written as a stream of consciousness, a process that is mirrored in the music, which moves in twists and turns between different musical realms. In her poem, Oliver reminds us of the beauty and predictability of nature and that we will always get through difficult and dark times.

—Anna Clyne

A Thousand Mornings

All night my heart makes its way
however it can over the rough ground
of uncertainties, but only until night
meets and then is overwhelmed by
morning, the light deepening, the
wind easing and just waiting, as I
too wait (and when have I ever been
disappointed?) for redbird to sing”

—Mary Oliver
