Garden of Peace

Philip Lane



Product Description

The Garden of Peace is a re-name for the fifth movement of The Suite of Cotswold Folkdances (not to be confused with “Cotswold Dances”). The original work was commissioned by the Stroud Festival to celebrate HRH, the Princess Anne and her family taking up residence in the Cotswolds, near Stroud. The suite of dances is based on traditional Morris tunes prevalent in the Cotswolds at the turn of the century. Although the tunes themselves are left largely untouched, their implied harmonies and moods are treated more freely to create a balanced work for the concert.
