Commissioned Programme Note

Love songs come in many different guises, displaying a range of emotions from the excitement of falling in love, to the joy of being in love, or the heartbreak of lost love. Of course these sentiments have been around for ever, and such descriptions can be found in the histories and cultures of all societies. These usually take the form of a lyrical, musical or poetic expression of romantic love. Love is a sentiment that people often find hard to put into words, unable to describe the real feelings that it invokes and hence expression through art often provides a more manageable medium for the most intangible of emotions.
