Programme Notes

At the end of 2002 I was at my Aunt and Uncle’s farm near Bathurst, NSW, supposedly writing my Ph.D. exegesis. However, as sometimes happens, a certain melody entered my head and refused to leave. I felt that it had the character of a father singing a soft song to a young child, and the result is this pastoral piece, Lullaby.

Lullaby was premiered in Wales at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival in 2003 by a massed group of local young string players.

notes by Matthew Hindson.
