This one’s a little bit of a cheat, since it’s from the post-2003 period of composition. When I started this project twenty-plus years ago, the thing was a song cycle for chorus and piano. Everything I wrote was for the piano. After we went to Scotland and decided to stage this, it became bigger, and everything I wrote was with an orchestra in mind. Some pieces, like this one, I wrote already orchestrated. However, I did get it up and running with the GPO sounds today, plus tweaked dynamics.
I think I’m going to create a page for all this so that people who visit here don’t have to track down all the posts.
