The Night Watchman (2009)

The Night Watchman was first performed by the Dulwich Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lindsey Ryan on the 27th of June 2009 at All Saints Church (Dulwich).                      

for symphony orchestra

Duration: 5'



A solider stands alone, high on a watchtower, surrounded by cold darkness.

In the distance, the enemy advances.


The watchman follows their movements

and grows ever more fearful.

He is briefly reassured by a fellow,

but his gaze soon returns to the looming army.


Terror takes hold once more.

As night deepens, he cannot hold back the sea of fear which finally engulfs him.
