In this sensitive, spiritual and ultimately uplifting journey inspired by the events of 9/11, a disparate group of individuals is trapped high up in one of the Twin Towers, caught between earth and heaven, life and death. Described as possessing a 'rare power to remind listeners of their own inner freedom' (Guardian), Davies' distinctive sound world combines unrestrained exuberance with emotional depth. Her requiem for choir, strings and electronics, As with Voices and with Tears, was nominated for a 2011 South Bank Sky Arts Award. World PremierePerformers Susan Bickley, Eric Greene, Rhian Lois, Clare Presland, Philip Rhodes, Andrew Watts.
