A swollen swell a rushing tide

swept away my cushty bride

amongst the fishes she resides.


River waters deep and wide

where your lady does abide. 

How can you reach the other side?


City Solstice, a choral and orchestral work composed by John Harle with words by poet Tom Pickard, will have its world premiere at the City of London Festival on Monday, 22 June 2009. The piece has been commissioned to mark the 800-year anniversary of the completion of the “old” London Bridge in stone. It will feature the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, and Harle himself on saxophone. Ticket information can be found here.
