Set of four pieces for piano (2008). ?Computer typeset score (9pp) in pdf format for immediate download.

Each of the 4 short pieces which make up this set commemorates the birth or death of a relative or friend and all are in a consciously tonal idiom. Pour Beatrice (based on the notes Bb E A C E) and Berceuse for Bertie mark the birth of my two grandchildren (the French titles referring to their paternal nationality) whilst Elegy on FS (based entirely around the notes F and Eb)is a little tribute to the composer Frank Spedding who was my first composition professor and became a dear friend. The final piece Flying marks the death of my Spitfire Pilot cousin who was so kind to me during his life. (Rory Boyle)
