Programme Note
Sasha Siem Deliver me O Lord (2009)
“…Siem’s piece is [still more] radically deconstructive/destructive: her take on her text, some verses from Ps. 140, is as memorable in its severity as any of her richer textures preferred by her elders: pared to the bare bone, female voices in three parts splinter the excoriating denunciation of man’s vile ways, the jagged phrases sharply pointed with intermittant stabs from a solo trumpet, till the acrid brilliant little thing locks into traumatized stasis.” [Robin Holloway, Spectator]
