Music Composed & Conducted by John Perkins, The Clovelly Studio Orchestra
Leader: Christian Halstead - Soprano Saxophone: Ken Peers - Solo Violin: John Perkins

'Jack's Peace'. This work is for soloist (Soprano Saxophone, Clarinet or Oboe) and strings and was written to mark the Baptism of Grandson Jack Sterling Cole Perkins - Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York City - 22nd March 2009. Solo Soprano Saxophone ? Ken Peers - 'Cole's Dream' was written to mark the Baptism of Grandson Cole Catcher James Perkins ? Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York City ? 29th May 2011. Based on the sounds 'do-re-do' which baby Cole was heard making in his sleep, this piece develops a lullaby-esque tune for solo violin, strings, woodwind, sustained brass and optional harp. A second version of Cole's Dream for bigger forces (including optional bagpipes), full brass and percussion is adapted for concerts to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Three versions are included on this recording. Solo Violin ? John Perkins - 'Elegy at Sunset' - Whilst studying composition at The Royal Academy of Music in 1980, John was asked to write a piece for strings that made use of the 'augmented' chord and 'minor and major 9th' chords. The result was 'Elegy at Sunset', a work that has increasingly found its way into the orchestral repertoire.
