This movement (duration 13min 37sec) was inspired by memories of �Holiday Fellowship� walks in the UK country-side over the years with groups of friendly people. The daily uncertainty of weather could mean a return to base with a sun-tan and sweaty clothing in blistering conditions, or soggy boots and rain-saturated attire if the heavens opened! But the joy of a pub lunch could not be denied and stoic jollity always prevailed during the return to base camp (usually a hotel) and well beyond the evening meal as dancing and �other entertainment� took over! In essence the movement depicts my memory of just one feature of such holidays � the panoramic view of the weather � in this case how the appearance of the sky can change during the course of the day � from a proliferation of dark rain clouds driven along by the wind, with the sound of thunder in the air, thence changing slowly to a lighter, silvery scene and finally to a sunny, more peaceful outlook, with white wispy clouds gently floating across a colourful sky over the freshened, patchwork colours of the country-side as the wind abates. Play mp3 for good rendition.
