Program Notes

Commissioned by tuba virtuoso Patrick Sheridan, Land of the Living Skies is inspired by the love of photography shared by both Patrick and I.

After moving from the UK to Saskatchewan, Canada, there were many changes, but perhaps the most striking of all were the skyscapes that my new home produced: stunning sunsets, incredible views of the Milky Way, amazing moonlit landscapes, and – of course – the Northern Lights.

This piece was the last I wrote before moving away from Saskatchewan and, given that the Province calls itself the “Land of the Living Skies”, it seemed only fitting to name the work after its amazing skies that had provided a lifetime’s worth of inspiration.

The piece is dedicated to Patrick Sheridan, an amazing tubist, musician, educator and friend.
