Happy Days

For the new Samuel Beckett festival “Happy Days” I am performing my ensemble version of The Sinking of the Titanic as well as setings of poems by Samuel Beckett, which will form part of the Beckett Songbook. I am writing these for members of my ensemble and members of Sonant Ensemble – my daughter Orlanda Bryars, soprano, and James Cave, alto. This will be the second collaboration between our two ensembles and the second work I have written for them.
