This group of three figures at Snape Maltings in Suffolk are part of a larger work by Barbara Hepworth.
The original work, cast in bronze, consists of nine pieces. The three chosen to be sited at the Maltings where placed at the edge of the site, behind the Concert Hall, in May 1976.
This sculpture, in stainless steel, sits at the north end of Aldeburgh beach and is a tribute to Benjamin Britten.
The words around the edge of the upright read “I hear those voices that will not be drowned” and are taken from the libretto by Montagu Slater to Britten’s opera Peter Grimes.
