Goldleafing a Dream

By Phillip Wilcher

Regular price $25.00 Sale


A vast music and magical journey of many genres and styles for oboe, cor anglais, flute and piano composed by Phillip Wilcher and sensitively performed by Rachel Tolmie (oboe, cor anglais), Amanda Muir (flute), and John Martin (piano). Inspired by this poem:
Wirr 046

A gold leafed page
From a distant age,
A dust clad century of dreams,
Of polished stones
And medieval thrones,
Of maidens wandering idly
By streams.
An illuminator's craft
Like a merchant's raft,
Transports wonders across
The thresholds of time,
To tell us something
Of a life before
Of a butterfly weaving a rhyme.
