A setting for upper voice choir and piano of three poems for children: The Wind (Robert Louis Stevenson), Matilda (Hilaire Belloc) and Where Go The Boats? (Robert Louis Stevenson).

Commissioned by my friends Nick and Eleanor Steinitz in memory of Corinna, and written for the Senior Choir and Chamber Choir of Finchley Children’s Music Group, and their director Grace Rossiter, for their concert on Saturday 14 November 2015.

Parts for an ensemble of six instruments (oboe, two violins, viola, cello and double bass), and a full score, are also available. There are two options for performance: (1) choir and piano, or (2) choir, piano and the full ensemble.
