“Peace breeds love, love bleeds peace and the world longs to bleed”

These are the words written by Irish troubadour Foy Vance in “Hope, Peace and Love” (used with kind permission…thanks always Foy) and I keep coming back to them time and time again. What they say totally relates to this suite of six new works made in six days.

 

“Though these are difficult works, they are not without hope”* There is one work for each week of the war in Ukraine and the final work, “и будет мир - and there shall be peace” holds fast to that hope.

 

вторжение - invasion

всегда готов - always prepared 

период перехода - time of transition 

мы не враги - we are not enemies 

зажигательный - incendiary 

и будет мир - and there shall be peace
