Duration: c6 minutes
Difficulty: 4/5

Composer’s note
Fire of Love was first performed on 22 March 2016 at St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate, London. It began life as an extended piano improvisation, and the piano line runs continuously throughout the piece. The voices and words, which I wrote myself, are woven around this inner texture and so the singing should be as sustained as possible. Aim for a real sheen on the sound, particularly at the climactic moments.

When I fall asleep,
You are my only dream.
Fire of love, you hold my heart now and always

You are everything;
I change my course for you.
Light never shone so bright or far.

When I fall asleep,
You are my only dream,
And when I wake, all my day is for you.

You are everything;
I change my course for you.
Fire of love, you hold my heart.

You are my dreams, now and always.

Will Todd
