Two richly dramatic orchestral scores are presented on this disc. In the Dark Time takes its title from TS Eliot's Four Quartets and reflects the turning of the seasons from winter to spring; and Chaconne, inspired by Geoffrey Hill's haunting evocation of the medieval battlefield at Towton, Yorkshire.
