This is the sixth piece from the Towards the Light collection for piano written during Patrick’s time as Composer in Residence for Classic FM. Inspired by Patrick’s love of the Norfolk landscape in which he lives and his Christian faith, the brief from Classic FM was to create soothing, accessible and sight-readable pieces. For the pianist there are a few more complicated timings that make it very interesting and rewarding to play.
Ebb Tide, with its hypnotic undulations, is a direct response to the spacious seascapes of the Norfolk coast and the eternal movement of the tide.
