Pomegranate cheeks

Poster & flyer design for Reading Bach Choir concert ‘Arise My Love: Music from The Song of Songs’ (2016)

‘Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate behind your veil’—Song of Solomon 4:3

rbc_arise_my_loveChallenging but fun: promoting a concert of music based on some of the most vividly sensuous and erotic poetry ever written.

Many composers over the centuries have been inspired by the Song of Solomon in the Old Testament to set the words to music, but not many artists have depicted it.

My brief: ‘Could we try something along the lines of: Middle East – grapes – pomegranates – deer – vineyards?’
