Composer's Notes  
This little work was written around Easter 1984 and is dedicated to Judith Weir. It has three movements which play without a break. The first is mainly slowish (andante molto); its rather faster dance-like inner section provides the main themes for the scherzo second movement (vivace), whose two trio-episodes in turn provide the molto-theme that permeates the last movement. This is slower than the first (adagio non troppo) and linked to it in material and in mood, by connections that, general at first, become more and more explicit towards the close.
