Work Introduction

David Sawer’s Mutability, a setting for young voices (SSA) is based on the short poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley (written in 1821 when the poet was 29, one year before his untimely death). It seemed appropriate to set the verse as transparently as possible, unadorned and without decoration and I hope that the pure sound of unaccompanied children's voices will only help to underline the serious tone of Shelley's poem. (David Sawer)
