Programme Note
Thea Musgrave Voices from the Ancient World (1998)
1. EOS: The Goddess of the Dawn, who travelled on the winds and sprinkled down dew upon the earth
2. PAN: The God of the countryside, of flocks, shepherds and animals, a famous player of the syrinx, or pan pipes, - the shepherd’s pipe.
3. BOREAS: The God of the North Wind who had two faces - one facing where he was going, the other from whence he came. He was the male counterpart to Eos.
4. CIRCE: The Enchantress who changed men into beasts. Ulysses was given a sprig from a certain plant by Hermes which allowed him to resist her charms.
5. PANDORA: When Pandora was created by Zeus, he ordered all the Gods to endow her with some of their attributes. She was also given a box, but forbidden to open it. Her curiosity about its contents overwhelmed her - she opened it and all the evils of the world flew out. Too late she closed it, but she managed to prevent the escape of Hope.
6. SELENE: The Goddess of the Moon who drives across the night sky in her chariot to visit the sleeping Endymion. She was once seduced by Pan.
