The partsong is written for SSAATBB choir, with piano accompaniment, and suggests an escapism to a paradisiacal “land beyond the waterfall, where everything is Spring, forever green and lovely”.
Another island has been arranged for female voice choir (SSAA) with soprano solo and piano (Op.51 No.2a). It is dedicated to Adrian Pitts and the TGS Motet Choir from Tonbridge, Kent.
