Christmas Past

1989 for piano, revised for organ 2012; dedicated 'to my grandmother, Edith McGowan'

The adult composer’s reflections on childhood Christmases are wired into the collective consciousness of shared hope, expectation, joy and disappointments in her Christmas Past, originally conceived in 1989 as a set of children’s piano pieces and revised for organ in 2012. The music’s fabric contains references to other Bingham works and fleeting lines and rhythmic motifs from evergreen Christmas carols.
