Completed in its present form in 2011, but since slightly shortened since the beautiful performance on YouTube by Althea Talbot-Howard and Dominic Saunders, who also gave the premiere.

I imagine at the start ‘Bells in the brightest sunlight’, perhaps midday in Tuscany – then follows a more reflective passage ‘In the shade’ where the opening fanfares are transformed over simple trills and tremolos. We are then back ‘outside in the sunlight: dancing’, before a ‘very broad and sonorous’ coda brings us full circle, ending with a tiny reminiscence of the dancing music.
