A study for solo trumpet exploiting flutter-tonguing and alternating legato passages with stabbing accents in a chromatic idiom. In Martin Bussey’s chamber opera, Mary’s Hand, Gloriana represents Mary Tudor’s sister, later to be Elizabeth I. Mary knows she is her rival, but also longs to end their conflict. The music presents a dramatic, dual portrait of Elizabeth, ending with a wistful melody representing the sisters’ ‘hateful opposition’.
