This work for soprano voices and electric piano was composed to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the sculptor Dame Barbara Hepworth. It was written for the girls' voices of Wakefield Cathedral Choir and the assistant Master of Music Tom Moore receiving its first performance at a special Festival Evensong on the 100th anniversary of the sculptor's birthdate, 10 January 2003. Subsequently it was performed by the soprano Philippa Reeves and keyboard player Robert Court at the
Hepworth Music Day at Yorkshire Sculpture Park with young musicians from City High School, Wakefield.

The music takes words adapted by the composer from an essay published in the journal Unit 1 by Barbara Hepworth . Published in 1934 this a unique and moving statement of an artist's vision and rationale.
