Halcyon Days - Evocations and Landscapes

by Peter Thorogood

These five pieces,  brought together under the title Halcyon Days, were composed at Albyns Farm, Peter Thorogood's childhood home in Essex, and were revised between 1946 and 1952, during his student days at the Guildhall School of Music and the Royal Irish Academy of Music. They evoke memories of happy childhood days.
