Benson Wilson (baritone) and Michael Sikich (piano) at Wigmore Hall, London, UK, 23 May, 2017
Text, by Leo Doulton:
Turn with the wind on imperious wings,
Through lightning and hail,
BE lightning and hail,
While falling, or flying.
In the clouds is peace, as promised,
And all is calm, is tranquil, is dull,
So dull one might sleep, or seek-
Forgetting it all but the air in my hair-
Coming to embrace me,
Sees me move to miss the ground again, to cheer.
