Programme note

Commissioned by the Vigani Project 2007.

Although little is known about the private life of Francis Vigani, less is known about his family. This piece gives temporary life to his wife Elizabeth and to his daughters. His first daughter remains nameless, his second daughter was possibly called Jane.

Vigani’s Others is dedicated to my only daughter, Freya Elizabeth Ann Bowen Church-Harrison, born 21 December 1990.

I. I am Elizabeth: I am Vigani’s wife. I am Elizabeth Vigani. I am Elizabeth.

II. They say my name is Jane: I am Vigani’s daughter. They say my name is Jane. Jane Vigani. Jane. I am Vigani’s daughter.

III. I have no name: I am Vigani’s daughter. I have no name. I am Vigani’s lost daughter.
