A suite of pieces focusing on different aspects of light:

I. Lightscape
II. At the Going Down of the Sun
III. Set Alight.

The second movement reflects on the light of the sun as it sets. Because of the nature of my career I have written a fair amount of ceremonial music and this movement brings me close to that genre once again. There is, in the title, a reference to the familiar Remembrance line ‘At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them’ from the poem For the Fallen by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) written in September 1914 a few weeks after the outbreak of the First World War – and while the music is not a setting of these words – or in any way referential – there is an echo of the words 'We will remember them’ at one point.
