Programme Note:
Three Meditations on Light was inspired by various conceptions of light and sun, in particular Sol Invictus, the unconquerable sun. In ancient Egyptian culture (ca. 3000 – 2000 BC) it was believed that each night, the sun god, Ra, made a heroic journey, and fought a nocturnal battle in order to rise again in the morning. I love the idea that the sunrise is not a given, that each new day is miraculous.
