Quartet for mixed ensemble - flute, violin, horn, cello, c.18'00

The work takes its title from a lyric of Little Gidding, in T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. This poem inspired and nourished the composer during the creation of the work. It did this because it speaks eloquently of the creative process itself: tumult; achievement and loss; and mystery. And it did so because the exploration of Time and Eternity is evocative and compelling and seems to address the heart of the mystery of being. To find a musical representation of this interplay and co-existence between “the timeless and time” was a principal inspiration for this work.
Composed 1989, 2nd Ed 2017
