Thank you, Mark Nicol.

A very beautiful, uplifting piece, Mark -- although somehow strangely sad (since it's based on the Minor 7th, I suspect that's the reason). I was also intrigued by your first piece, although I confess to having found that one somewhat long-winded. This one was very satisfying! Thanks fo rsharing this!

Thank you for that Tim. Yes, it is written about my mother, and the relationship with her mother, which was very brief, and very, very sad. I used the mental imagery of two chandeliers spinning silently in space, and the melodic fragments are actually derived from the mediaeval chant Salve Regina, so the work is kind of a Madonna piece. It is an elegy to the myth or desire for eternal maternal devotion.

Best wishes,

Mark Nicol.
