The collaged texts of Spinning Flax are “spun” together from a broad historical range of source material – court records, church and town records, neurological case histories, Medieval and Renaissance histories – which provide recorded utterances of young girls aged 12–20 in some state of visionary transcendence.

For treble voices in six parts (SSSAAA) a cappella.
