Introduction: AUTUMN MILK - the orchestral suite, was assembled and arranged in 2009, with close reference to the original score of 1988. After the introduction, the landscape theme 'In the river of time. The 'Anne Theme''', is heard, then followed by a dramatic scene 'Casualty at the plough' and finally 'Death of the Mother'.
