A Litany is a transcription and recomposition of an oboe quintet which I wrote for Nicholas Daniel to play at the Leicester Festival in 1998. It lasts about quarter of an hour and is a mosaic of a couple of dozen very short pieces: laments, midnight chimes, chorales, nocturnes, fragments and echoes. It is music of darkness and stillness, sometimes on the edge of silence.
