Programme Note:
The piece Elements is based on a poem of the same name by Ruby Mulcaster (Marwood), my paternal grandmother. Having been born into a farming family in the early twentieth century, Ruby was unable to pursue a formal education past the age of fourteen. From that time forward her personal studies were focused on the Bible and her poetry. She had a strong belief in God throughout her life, and much of her poetry reflects this faith. Although her poem "Elements" does not have an obvious religious tone like many of her other works, it portrays the awe Ruby felt when she observed the wonder of God's creation; I believe the wind also refers to the Holy Spirit.This piece is dedicated to my mother and father.
