Written in 2009, ’Elegy for the Casualties of War’ is for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano, and lasts just over 9 minutes.

The work is in 3 sections played without a break, Andante, Presto and Adagio. With so many conflict zones in different parts of the world, I felt inspired to write an elegy for those people who die unjustly in these circumstances and to remember their families who are left behind.

It is not appropriate to give an analysis of what each section means as I believe that listeners can interpret this for themselves. Just to say that the thoughts I had in mind for the closing bars are that those who have passed on in these circumstances are no longer suffering and, even though they part this world earlier than expected, their souls are being looked after and they are at peace.
