A Way A Lone A Last  (2015)

for recorder trio


A Way A Lone A Last  is an interpretation of the last six hundred and eight words of James Joyce's 'Finnegans Wake'  (Faber & Faber, London, 1939)  from Imlamaya to a loved a long the, in so much as the wake can neverend, its cyclical form a perpetual cyclum aquavocum, forever writing the river Anna Livia out to the Sea to return again, riverrun.

The work was composed for Trio Invento, with première at the Bürgerspitalkirche in Hallein on June 13th 2015.
