Programme Note
Tarik O'Regan Blessed are they (2013)
Text:
Blessed are they whose labours only cease
When God decrees the quiet, sweet release;
Who lie down calmly in the sleep of peace.
Blessed are they!
[Excerpted from All Saint’s Day (1867) by Ada Cambridge (1844-1926)]


I have come to the borders of sleep, The unfathomable deep Forest where all must lose Their way, however straight, Or winding, soon or late; They cannot choose.
[Excerpted from Lights Out (1916) by Edward Thomas (1878-1917)]


[Blessed are they!]
Whose dust is angel‐guarded, where the flowers
And soft moss cover it, in this earth of ours;
Whose souls are roaming in celestial bowers.
Blessed are they!
[All Saint’s Day, Ada Cambridge]
