for SS and piano Ben Okri's poem is a hopeful vision of understanding and co-operation between the peoples of the Earth. It is matched by Bullard's imaginative, dynamic, and skilful choral writing. The result is inspiring.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Awakening Age' is an energetic and forward moving setting of life-affirming words by Ben Okri. Where it occurs, the two-part writing is mainly imitative and could easily be tackled by confident primary or middle-school choirs. * Christopher Field, Music Teacher August 2002 *
'The Awakening Age' is a song from Bullard's cantata Prime Meridian, and starts a step ahead of its rivals in the field by having a sensitive but unsentimental text by Ben Okri. Like many pieces written for young choirs it is a 'travelling-along song' but it avoids the pitfalls of the genre found so often in donkey-related carols. Returns of the main theme are always enlivened by fresh touches, and there are also time and space for moments of repose. * Church Music Quarterly June 02 *
To a poem by Ben Okri, originally written for an Oxfam project, Alan Bullard's music pulsates with vitality and energy. This was originally written for primary school children, but I can see older children relishing its strong melody and syncopated rhythms. The two-part writing is fairly straightforward, there is a lovely contrast in the gentle middle section, and it ends with a bang. Use it and win over your junior choir. * Church Music Quarterly March 2002 *
