Matthew Whittall: Shiki (Four Seasons)

Four haiku of Santoka Taneda
for mixed choir
Shiki grew into a choral cycle on haiku by a 20th century Japanese monk Santoka Taneda. The main impression the composer wished to convey was the one of absolute stillness at the heart of each scene, of communion with the outer world, as if the viewer were drawing the landscape into him, and at the same time dissolving himself into it.
