It's that time of year again when composing has to give way to endless grass cutting (well here on Dartmoor anyway!) - so thought I would work on a couple of short miniatures. This is the first of two short pieces inspired by English hymn tunes, scored for
Flute, Cor Anglais, Clarinet, Bassoon, 2 Trumpets, 2 French Horns and double string orchestra. The latter allowed me to combine both the short/sus and lush samples.
