Hi, I posted a sketch from this sometime back and was much encouraged by your kind responses. So here is the complete suite for small orchestra - the Bude Concert Orchestra (no surprises there!). I still can't believe it but they will be performing this in the autumn. The piece conveys images from the seaside town of Bude as follows:
1) Dawn over Widemouth Bay. Broad and moody. The view from Penhalt Farm as dark clouds disperse and the sun breaks through and glitters on the sea below.
2) In the Town. Jolly and busy. The bells of the clock tower can be heard.
3) From Compass Point. A broad introduction as one looks out to sea from the cliff tops, followed by a faster swirling section that depicts water swirling amongst the rocks below. Towards the end, the flute solo plays 'The Seagull Descending' as opposed to the Lark Ascending'!
4) Sunset at Summerleaze. The end of a great day as the sun sets over the beach. A touch of melancholy here.
I'm still putting final touches to this so would welcome feedback please before I start to prepare the final score. Regards, Graham
