Work Overview

A world of strawberries, birds, gardens and cheeky foxes comes to life in this collection of 3 short works written to commemorate 40 years of marriage - Stephanie and Ross Burton's 'Ruby' Wedding Anniversary. During the composition process, the Burtons sent me delightful tid-bits of inspiration including a specially made 'inspiration book' beautifully encased in a hand-made protective quilt case sewn by Steph Burton herself. These ideas weaved their way into the music, which was written specifically for a selection of musicians the couple knew personally and held in high regard who performed the work for their Ruby wedding anniversary celebration.
