Programme Note:
This piece was written in the months following the death of my grandmother, Hilda Symonds, and is dedicated to her. A few years before her death, she gave me her school music text, The Scottish Student's Handbook, which is filled with folk songs from around the British Isles. I chose from this book a Scottish fold song, The Boatman, and within that song I found the materials for this piece. This work reflects on memory, stillness, and change.

Premiere Information:
