English dance and song forms are used as the basis for new and beautiful themes. The same polyphonic style of writing for pipes developed by Jon for The Halfe Hannikin Variations is here further extended and exploits to the full the amazingly rich sonority offered by six pipes. As for the Variations, the pipers are Lawrence Morgan-Anstee, Judy Rockliff and Anne Marie Summers on G pipes, David Faulkner and Chris Walshaw on low C pipes, Jon Swayne on high C pipes with Terry Mann on percussion.
