In August I was writing this music in my secluded back room, and part way through a beautiful fox walked through my garden. It was sleek, and red, and very striking to see [With a wonderful tail of fur swishing behind it.] So the tune, which until then was just a melody going down on the page, suddenly acquired its title "The Foxe's tail".. Illustrations followed more recently. I also used my recently acquired metal manuscript nib pen to make the inked manuscript page stave lines, on the finished manuscript [after many weeks of practice.]
Here is a piece I wrote back in 2012; which is illustrated. Imagine in a dark, dank deeply set cave, by a cove facing the sea; entering a dark, dank cave, facing the open sea at the far end ,only to see emerge from the shadowy corners - three bony skeletons, who proceed to do a zany march through the cave, as you watch, only for them to eventually be washed away by a huge wave ! I shall leave the rest to your own imagination! It begins with a sort of feint fanfare motif before growing in spirit - and ending suddenly with a trill ....[as they are washed away by the giant wave!
