Solo violin, c.4'55
After the poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins

The Windhover is a musical meditation on the famous poem by Hopkins. The composer endeavoures to convey the poet’s concept of ‘sprung rhythm’, which is designed to simulate the natural rhythmic contours of speech. In this piece, the stresses in the melodic line align to the four stressed syllables or ‘feet’ in Hopkins’ original.
