Three settings of poems by Steve Hopson Sea Bird, After the Kill, Puffin.

Songs of the Clifftop for Baritone and Piano includes Study CD. 

These are very evocative setting of poems about nature.

"The imagery of the poems of the Songs of the Cliff-Top with their strong reference to the natural order of life, mirrors the ancient mysticism of Hea. This old God of nature, demanded nothing. The poetic landscape of these poems portrays a god not capable of love or hate, good or evil, but possessing the eternal logic of nature"

"It is enough to live and die, signing the purpose with our actions" Animals, indeed much of nature, with the exception of man adopts this concept.

Composed as part of the British Composers Guild 50th celebrations in 1994. Recorded by Mark Rowlinson Baritone, and Peter Lawson Piano in 2003.
