The Night Watchman was first performed by the Dulwich Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lindsey Ryan on the 27th of June 2009 at All Saints Church (Dulwich).
A solider stands alone, high on a watchtower, surrounded by cold darkness.
In the distance, the enemy advances.
The watchman follows their movements
and grows ever more fearful.
He is briefly reassured by a fellow,
but his gaze soon returns to the looming army.
Terror takes hold once more.
As night deepens, he cannot hold back the sea of fear which finally engulfs him.
Solider - Kelsey Freeman
