A response to ‘lockdown’ in the UK during the COVID-19 emergency
For nine consecutive days from 24 March 2020 Bill wrote a new poem or ‘lyric’. Each has three lines of nine syllables, creating ‘999’ for the state of emergency. These lyrics are set to music for two voices and cello. He also wrote a three-part Rainbow Round and a three-part Bell Canon.
