IN THE ANCIENT OF DAYS – Championship / A Grade
Based upon the Welsh hymn ‘Bleinwern’, In The Ancient of Days is a very modern take on theme and variations.

FIRE IN THE FLOOD – 1st/2nd Section / B Grade
A very clear three-section fast-slow-fast testpiece. The slow movement is very pretty and it is sandwiched between a Fanfare-esque 1st movement and a Scherzo last movement.

JOURNEY TO ALPHA CENTAURI – 3rd Section / C Grade
Recently set as the Queensland State C grade testpiece (2016), Journey to Alpha Centauri is in seven movements and tells the hypothetical tale of a journey to the nearest star after our sun. Very fun to play and even more fun to listen to.
