This is the fourth piece from the Towards the Light collection for piano written during Patrick’s time as Composer in Residence for Classic FM. Inspired by Patrick’s love of the Norfolk landscape in which he lives and his Christian faith, the brief from Classic FM was to create soothing, accessible and sight-readable pieces. For the pianist there are a few more complicated timings that make it very interesting and rewarding to play.
Patrick’s deeply held Christian faith find moving expressions in My Beloved Spake, inspired by the sensual language of the Bible’s Song of Songs and provides a quick pace and a great sense of optimism.
