Sing Ariel sets a patchwork of texts, ranging from Milton to Wallace Stevens, for 3 solo sopranos; it is coupled with The Death of Moses, a vast choral exploration of Hebrew myth.

"Sing Ariel is a marvellous song cycle for soprano. There's a vast range of texture and mood, often expressed through the simplest means."
