Lullaby for a Sleeping Landscape
It is the last day of the Year 2000; outside the Scottish Border hills are deep in snow. I watch the snow falling as I write this piece, and I hope you enjoy it - at any time of year.

The Bell Pool
A slow Scottish jig written for the guitar, using harmonics, named for the deep pool in the Tweed where the bells of ruined Kelso Abbey are supposed to lie, ringing as the dark water flows over them - to be heard when danger is near...
