"These 'Sanskrit Verses' are the result of a chance encounter with John Brough's 'Poems from the Sanskrit' which I discovered in a friend's library whilst house-sitting during the summer of 2007. I was struck by their succinct, inspired simplicity and quickly set to work. Many of the poems I have selected are by unknown authors (although John Brough makes educated guesses as to their origin) so I have freely adapted them in order to produce a workable text. This has sometimes involved combining more than one poem sharing similar subject matter and verse structure. The resulting four songs were conceived for a small choir of eight voices: two sopranos, two altos, two tenors and two basses (sopranos and basses dividing). However, a larger ensemble should be equally effective."John Frith
