Tarik O'Regan
The Night's Untruth

Tarik O'Regan's The Night's Untruth for SATB chorus, brass ensemble and organ is a co-commission celebrating the 10th anniversary of JAM (The John Armitage Memorial Trust) and the 40th anniversary of VocalEssence. 'The Night's Untruth explores the use of sleep as metaphor by dint of excerpts from poems written in the 17th to 20th centuries. Death, love, fear, ecstasy, isolation, dreaming and rest are all textual variations on the theme of sleep and can be found in the chosen texts. The work's title is taken from a line in a poem by Samuel Daniel (1562-1619) and speaks to the composition's focus on sleep as a parallel, possibly dystopian, existence to the one experienced in our waking hours.' - Tarik O'Regan, March 2010
