Pine Music  - duration -7’

soprano / flute / tambourine /piano / harp / solo vln (can be played by leader) / strings


Inspiration for this piece came from the poem "Pine Music" by Fiona McCleod.

The idea of hearing  music coming  on the wind, from somewhere in the distance, as a beautiful and magical sound, had long intrigued me. This poem caught these sentiments for me exactly. The use of the harp and piano together tries to "catch" these magical "tinkling"  sounds . "The faint and fairy music of the far off singing sea ..." (Fiona McCleod)
