Programme Note
Peter Dickinson Pastorale, Blues and Homage (2012)
The Pastorale comes from a song, a student work, setting the first poem of James Joyce’s
early cycle Chamber Music – ‘Strings in the earth and air’; the second piece is another song
to Burns’ ‘My love is like a red, red rose’, which was frequently performed by Meriel and
Peter Dickinson in their recitals (recorded on Albany TROY 369); Homage to Poulenc
started as a piano duet, No. 1 of Five Forgeries (recorded by the composer and John Flinders
on Naxos 8.572287). It is dedicated to Lennox Berkeley because he and Poulenc were good
The first performance of Pastorale, Blues and Homage was given by John Turner and the
composer at St Peter’s Church, Westleton, on 4 October 2012 in that year’s William Alwyn
Festival. Their recording has been released on Heritage HTGCD 254.
