This is the second 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.
Serenitas earned its name following a competition hosted by Classic FM for a suggested title which perfectly encapsulates its gentle oscillating feel. Made up of simple piano configurations it both enhances the tranquil mood, and also asks searching questions about the journey ahead.
