In the sixth century, Celtic Christian monks are thought to have made dangerous and difficult journeys from the west coast of Scotland to seek solitude in Iceland.
This evocative, pared-down sequence of poems - the imaginary fragments of a lost manuscript - tells their remarkable, little known story of faith, courage and determination. 'A Song among the Stones' was first commissioned by BBC Radio 3's The Verb.
