An exquisite pastoral miniature exploring the lyrical potential of the double bass. Ruth Gipps was one of Britain's leading female composers and successfully captures the beautiful melodic capabilities of the instrument. The accompaniment is strongly independent and supportive, producing one of the most beautiful works for double bass from an English composer.

A solo part for Contra Bassoon is also included.

Piano accompaniments are provided for both solo and orchestral tunings.
