Composer's Notes

A Sikh friend of mine once told me that, according to his religion, angels were present in any household where there were young children. In 1993, as a gift to my daughter Catherine, I wrote this static and serene miniature in an attempt to evoke this parallel world of heavenly beings – so far, but yet so close.
James MacMillan, 1997
