Program Notes

"Why aren't there more slow pieces in three four time?'' Why indeed. My colleague, Peter Francis, Conductor of the Queensland Youth Orchestra Wind Symphony, posed that question at a music teachers' conference along with the challenge to me to write such a piece. I did- the next morning! The music is slow and singing in style. It is plaintive and evocative in nature and it is simple - a Simple Song.
