Product details

The Suite was commissioned by Australian harpsichord player Audley Green. Audley has lived for many years with her husband and family on the Eastern coast of the United States of America, however she has regularly come back to Australia to give concerts, touring many thousands of kilometres with her van and harpsichord throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Together with flautist John Wion, Audley
gave the Australian premier of the Suite in Canberra in 1991.
The third movement American Dream was written while I was staying with Audley and her husband in winter, 1990, at their homes in Hartford, Connecticut and North Waterford, Maine. Audley took myself and Rosemary Parle, also visiting to a large theatre in Hartford where a congregation of some 3000 black people were commemorating Martin Luther King Day with prayers, orations and singing. The passion of both speakers and
congregation made a vivid impression, and as a result I wrote this movement whilst still in America, surrounded by snow and the sights and sounds of the North Eastern United States. The oratory and the massed singing are reflected in the two moods of this movement.
