A Song Among the Stones

from Hilary de Vries

Sheet Music

Writer and poet Kenneth Steven's sequence of poems on early Christian hermits inspired Hilary de Vries to write music in response to them. Together they tell the story of the hermits who made the journey in the 6th Century from Iona to Iceland.

Contains all 30 poems and accompanying pieces of music, as well as guidance notes on how to play the music. Suitable for a wide range of instruments.

'Kenneth has a rare gift for being able to transmute the mundane into the mesmerising, in a kind of poetic alchemy'
