A powerful, lyrical and haunting work for solo unaccompanied flute inspired by Dylan Thomas's evocative metaphysical poem 'And death shall have no dominion'. The piece has been performed many times, including at commemorative and religious services. Utilising modal melodies, the work has been popular with a variety of audiences. Ideally, Thomas's poem should be read/recited prior to the performance of the music.
