Heartsounds is a piece of music of ten minutes duration, written for an unaccompanied solo female voice. It was a site-specific work, inspired by the sound of a human heart, and was devised in collaboration with composer, Robin Hartwell. The work was performed live at 11am each morning from 18 Sept-18 Oct 2008 from the balcony of Liverpool Cathedral’s Corona Gallery by one of a rota of three young sopranos: Sarah Legerwood, Kirsten Maltby and Julia Smith. The words of the composition are a combination of prayer and eulogy.
