Lancing Beach - 5’


Lancing Beach was written after a holiday spent at Lancing, Sussex, during the hot weather of1990. It tries to capture all the feelings of the beach, mostly the beautiful emptiness; peaceful, yet slightly wistful.


The opening returns, once during the piece and once at the end, giving a feeling of mist and sad-tinged tranquillity.
