The piece draws on a poem by US educator and women's rights advocate Alice Freeman Palmer (d.1902). It was commissioned from Anna Disley-Simpson during her composer residency with the London Oriana Choir in 2019-21 as part of a five year initiative by the Choir to promote the work of women composers (www.five15.org) through new commissions from five composers. This is the first recording release from the five15 programme.
