A percussion concerto composed for Dame Evelyn Glennie and the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra. My inspiration is that of the desperate hope of the world 100 years ago when Mothers, Fathers. Daughters, Sons, Wives, Husbands, Girlfriends, Boyfriends and Lovers waited for news of their special person and the love stories that have endured. The Great War separated many lovers, where the only means of communication was the written word.
