John Beresford Mathews from the 'John Beresford Mathews' Collection

Get Flash to see this player.

This collection is to completely honour the man John Beresford Mathews.
When Maria's father died, we went over to Menorca and on to the boat that he loved so much. As Maria sat inside with Sandra, John's partner, I sat outside on the back of the boat and began to write the first part of a four part collection to remember him by. I sat for a long time until Maria tapped me on the shoulder and to my astonishment, it was pitch black, my skin was freezing cold and the complete collection was finished.
This first part remembers the man.
A cheeky little grin when he had beaten you at something,the stately way in which I saw him with a refined aura...

Part One
To be able to translate your feelings for someone into a coherent musical statement is a skill that not many people have, Christopher. To me, this first part portrays a person with quiet confidence and a personality that people are drawn to. It is a lovely piece of music. Thanks for sharing this with us. Kind regards, peter.

Hello Peter
Thank you for your comment.
It feels like the music writes itself as I am almost in a state of trance. I lock on to how I am feeling and sometimes I come round and think, "How did this happen"

I think I'll listen to all four before commenting - but already I can tell that your composition skills are on display. Your ability to tell a story, paint a picture, express an emotion in your music is second to none.

Music is the life blood of the soul, it takes over where words might fail and I am but a simple conduit for such love... Music is a composite of the conscious, the sub-conscious and luck! Christopher P Sly E-mail: c.sly... [see more]
