Programme Note

Invocation was originally the second movement of Melancholia, Cheryl's first piano trio. In 2007 Cheryl arranged this movement for solo cello, six cellos and double bass at the suggestion of cellist Leonid Gorokhov, to record on her first CD, The Glory Tree.

Since then she also arranged the work for double bass and piano (buy here), and used it as a middle movement in Songs and Dances which Cheryl later arranged for violin and piano at the request of Fenella Humphreys to record as Sonatina on her and Nicola Eimer's So Many Stars CD.

Finally, Cheryl also arranged Invocation for cello and string orchestra (under the title of Invocation for Yodit) in memory of Yodit Tekle as part of Martin's Anderson's Music for My Love project.
