Thirty Steps


Scored for SATBB with flute, harp and percussion, this work was commissioned in 2022 by the Hellenic Institute at Royal Holloway University of London for performance in 2023 to mark its 30th anniversary.  The work is set to “The Ladder of Divine Ascent” (an ascetic guide to heaven in 30 steps) written by St John Climacus in the 7th century.
