Programme Note

I had the first idea for Tol-Pedn when walking along the cliffs of south Cornwall. Although the wind and waves crashed violently against the rocks, I felt that the place had a sense of underlying calm, which I have tried to reflect in this piece. The alto flute part is based on an In Nomine by William Byrd; the piece belongs to the 'In Nomine Broken Consort Book' which contains works written by over 20 different composers for Ensemble Recherche.
