For Timothy

Solo instrument

For guitar

I wrote this work when I was living in Northumberland to celebrate the bar mitzvah of Timothy Fox.

About the work

For Timothy is in 4 short movements. The 2 middle movements are based on 2 folksongs — Binnorie, O Binnorie, a Scottish song dating from the 1650s, and a Northumbrian ballad, Buy Brooms, Buzzems. These are preceded by a prelude which is repeated as a postlude.
