Taking beautiful words by Emily Dickinson on a theme of isolation and community, this song is a personal journey and reflection on the pain of being separated from friends and family during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As many of us have found over the past year, music has an incredible power to help us imagine better times, where loneliness and frustration will be replaced by sharing and companionship. When I hear the AC Academy Scholars perform my piece I feel this sense of positivity so strongly. I hope that their beautiful singing might invite you to feel the same way. Toby Young
