‘The Woods’ is written about the many walks I have taken in The Ashridge Estate with my wife.
In Movement 1 we enter into the woods walking through the carpets of bluebells. Different species of butterflies are abundant as is a rich diversity of flowers.
Movement 2 takes us deep into the woods, the scattered light shines through the trees and all is calm. There is a sense of enchantment deep in the ancient woods.
Movement 3 celebrates the beauty of the wildlife such as the deer that run wild, along with the squirrels, birds and other creatures that call the woods their home.
