Notes & Reviews:

Many years ago in the country south of Melbourne, Australia, I heard a honeyeater sing a song - as one does. The time was memorable because it had a very nice, simple rhythm with very precise musical notes: it was exactly as I put it at the beginning of the first of the four From a Bird pieces and it seemed to ask for some development. ? The only other title which has any meaning is Hello Francis, which is a homage to a dear friend and great African musician, Francis Bebey from Cameroon: in this I use one of his favorite rhythms, the makossa. The remainder of the titles are simply my effort to call the pieces something less boring than just numbers - except of course the Irish tunes, which are all traditional and well known. - John Williams
