To Fly Above the Wind

To Fly Above the Wind  is a work, (around 8 minutes in length), for string quartet. The title of the piece is derived from the poem ‘I Find No Peace’ by the 16th century poet,  Sir Thomas Wyatt.  In this time of regional conflict throughout the world, I felt  a deep desire to express myself in that regard. As a result, It  was my intention to compose a work which is a reflection of Wyatt’s poem of peace. The composition is lyrical and melodic, with extensive periods of interweaving lines. Far from being confrontational, the piece was written to sooth the soul of the listener. You can listen to the midi recording below. A score and set of parts is available on request.
