In the pantheon of ancient religions, the myth of Athena is possibly the most intriguing and diversified of all the gods. Throughout the years her image has been persistent in my dreams and I finally wrote this music perhaps in a state of trance in 1990 at Elstree, Hertfordshire. For some logically inexplicable reason the score disappeared and the music was forgotten almost immediately. Yet, it surfaced again several years later, in 2013. I recorded the music in the same year.

The world premiere of Athena took place at the Stadtbibliothek "Walter Bauer" in Merseburg, Germany, on 21st October 2015 and was performed by Heloise Ph. Palmer.
