From the album The Edge of Forever.
Following the premiere of Silver Rose narrated by Robert Hardy in 2014, he asked me to compose a piece of music for future performance by the band at his funeral, incorporating classical themes of his choice. Sadly he passed away before the request was formally recorded; however, the music was already partially written and subsequently completed in his memory. The title is a line taken from Song by Isaac Rosenberg, the last movement of Silver Rose.
Robert Hardy’s selection of music was chosen from the following works: opening violin melody from Nielsen Violin Concerto Op. 33 Movement 1 Praeludium (1911); Un Bal 'A Ball' from Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique Op. 14 (1830); motif from Beethoven Symphony No. 5 in C minor Op. 67 Movement 1 Allegro (1804-1808); ‘alphorn call’ from Brahms Symphony No. 1 in C minor Op. 68 Movement 4 (1884); Sibelius Symphony No. 6 in D minor Op. 104 Movement 4 Allegro Molto (1923).
