Entranced by the beauty and possibility of these words and musical forces, I started to write a suite of short Tempest settings for SSAA + treble chorus, and a 9-piece ensemble of flutes, cellos and percussion (out of which, Our Revels became the fourth movement of five) each attempting to distil one of the concepts of the play. The first performances of this larger work were given by the (then recently-formed) CBSO Junior and Senior Youth Choruses, conducted by Simon Halsey.
