I. Of the Ocean (A lyrical dance)
II. Of the Sky (A Slipjig)
III. Of the Forest (A Tango)
Note from the composer:
‘Of the Ocean’ is a murmuring evocation of swirling waves and a lone light seen far out into the sea.
‘Of the Sky’ is the lightness of the air as birds flitter and turn delicately amongst the clouds.
‘Of the Forest’ is the journey through a darkened forest.
