Programme Note

This short work (duration 5 minutes) was written in 1960 for Margaret Kitchen.

Although the music is rhapsodic in character, it is nevertheless composed over a structural background of variation form. The textures build up gradually though the impetus is momentarily checked when a fugal passage makes its appearance and then quickly leads to the culminating point of the work, a big declamatory climax.
