Format Notes

This is one of sequence of 5 wind quintets. The movements are:
1 - Marie for shame, a sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day.
It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard.
2 - Nocturne represents Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece.
3 - Camp David is klezmer in style and somewhat camp, it is based on a Yiddish folk song - ikh bin a meidel in de joren.
(I am a maiden come of age)
4 - Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ Church Oxford)
and lamented the fact he had to stay in and study while he was actually looking forward
to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river.
5 - Paddywhack is based on an Irish jig in 6/8 time by that name which relates originally to St Patrick (Paddy), hence an Irishman from "Paddy" + "whack": as in "get one's Irish up"
