A Michaelangelo sonnet lies at the heart of Il Rozzo Martello - a contemplation on the process of artistic creation and the role of inspiration within it; the sculptor's 'crude hammer'; of the title; in Davies's words; 'a pale echo of the creative efforts of exploring the same theme and similar imagery'. This introduction is distinguished from the setting of Michaelangelo's test by adopting a plainsong style; although it builds to a climax with progressively rich harmony Duration: c 12 minutes.
