World Premiere
Flaxton Ensemble
Composer's Notes

Untold was commissioned by the Ayr Arts Guild for the Flaxton Ensemble who gave the premiere in 1987. It is a short, slow movement for wind quintet but using a cor anglais instead of an oboe. Its mood is lyrical and expressive, the material being loosely based on an Irish love-song: For Ireland I’ll not tell her Name. The piece is dedicated to my young nephew Sean.
James MacMillan
