Fluctuating states of calm / chamber music of Sandra France.

Library shelf no. CD 3218 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

Miss Mugwort is dedicated to my first born daughter, Antoinette (Nette) Elizabeth France. Although the instrumentation is based on Schoenberg's Pierro Lunaire, the soundscape of the work is in stark contrast to the late, and great, serial composer. With tongue-in-cheek, Miss Mugwort is a melodic, Jazz influenced chamber work rich in counterpoint and rhythmic complexity. The work is named after a children's story-book series written by Linda Britnell and illustrated by Joanna Walsh, which features a contrary fairy whose name is Nettie Mugwort.
