Seeking suitable poetry to be used with the plaintive sound of the oboe, I eventually found inspiration from the poem Shadows of the Fallen by Sue Spivey, which Sue gave to me on Remembrance Day,  2015.  I was privileged to be able to discuss the project with Sue and with oboist Mark Hutchinson.  Having discussed in particular extended techniques, I decided not to use any, apart from easier smears.  Takes a moving and unusual view on the loss of life in World War I

Each verse is preceded by a short music movement,  then read out, perhaps by the oboist:  this gives the player a break, essential in an unaccompanied work.
