‘Eye of the Storm’, 2007, oil on linen, by Susan Bee

In a candlelit Minster this atmospheric sequence of words and music celebrates the power and beauty of water: the music comprises three peaks of the 20th century choral repertoire which conjure a seascape, snowbound solitude, and a breathtaking journey through the eye of a storm – all rarely heard because they demand vocal virtuosity of the highest order.
