His End Was...

Three Explorations for solo flute | 2019
First performance 12 October 2019, All Saints, Highbrook

This set of three 'Explorations for flute' was inspired by two things: the gravestone used in Pickering as a paving slab with the engraving: HIS END WAS and a discussion with its commissioning performer, Ivor Humphreys, about Tone Rows! His Row is the starter for the third, my Row for the first, and a Waltz for the second.

1. His End Was… his Beginning (a palindrome)
2. His End Was… his Dance
3. His End Was… his Row
