Pastorale - Trevalga -  duration 19’

2 flutes / 2 oboes  / 2 clarinets / 2 bassoons  / 2 horns  / tubular bells (optional) / strings


This one movement piece was written in 2007, after a holiday in Cornwall. It depicts the tranquility of a tiny hamlet, where we would wander in the mellow late afternoon or early evening: where nothing could be heard save the sound of birds, and where we would wander to watch the sea from the cliff top......

The piece is largely based on strings and flute, and is light, calm and gentle, with long melody lines.
