"If life be
time that here is lent, And time on earth be cast away, Whoso his time hath here misspent, Hath hastened his own dying day"
‘'Of The Loss Of Time', a poem by the Elizabethan poet John Hoskins, is set to music for counter-tenor, performed on this recording by Daniel Tucker, and forms the final part of the soundtrack to this film. With poems by four Elizabethan poets, the themes of this film: time, winter, love and the sea are explored through the beautiful and seductive visual landscape, which is washed in an emotionally charged music. Images of the cottage once owned by Derek Jarman at Dungeness, act as references to Jarman's arthouse film of 1990, 'The Garden'.
