Program Notes

This work is suggestive of the historical times surrounding the fall of Pevensey Castle in the south of England during the dark ages. Written in 3/4 time, this is a very imaginative and effective piece.

- Program Note from publisher

Pevensey Castle is a medieval castle and former Roman Saxon Shore fort at Pevensey in the English county of East Sussex. Built around 290 AD and known to the Romans as Anderitum, the fort appears to have been the base for a fleet called the Classis Anderidaensis. It has been suggested that Anderitum and the other Saxon Shore forts were built in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to prevent Rome from reimposing its control over Britain. Anderitum fell into ruin following the end of the Roman occupation but was reoccupied in 1066 by the Normans, for whom it became a key strategic bulwark. Pevensey Castle was reoccupied between 1940 and 1945, during the Second World War, when it was garrisoned by units from the Home Guard, the British and Canadian armies and the United States Army Air Corps.
