And In The Centre We Dance

We come spinning out of nothingness.
Scattering stars like dust.
The stars form a circle
and in the centre we dance.

Rumi

I have neglected this supposedly weekly blog while I've been madly finishing up solo pieces for my concert next weekend. Rather than hold off another week before I get back to you - I'll share one of these pieces.

I wrote this one for Emlyn (husband/baritone) many years agoc as part of an Oratorio and have reworked it for the concert, where we will do a few pieces from the original work.
The Oratorio was called Letters For A Queen and follows the journey of Merchior to Bethlehem.

It's quite chilly in our house which means the piano's tuning has come completely undone, and Emlyn has taken to wearing a blanket cape. We are recording the concerts next weekend so you will be able to hear it done properly but I thought you might like a sneaky peak. x

I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Hopefully with some wonderful recordings to share.
