‘Black Snow’ is a tribute to David Bowie and was written shortly after his death on the 10th of January, 2016. The words are Huw’s and the music comes courtesy of David Cooper Orton. 

Huw’s said that this is the first time that he and David have tried to use words just for their sound rather than the way they might fit into a story. ‘A valiant effort too’ he added, ‘and one we’ll be trying again in the future.’ When asked to elaborate further on the piece he told us that he wrote it in about half-an-hour in the tea-room of Hereford cathedral, and when he’d finished it felt it didn’t need to be worked up into a structured rhyme or rhythm. What do you think?
