When I was living in London in the 1970s, there was a couple, Hans and Elsbeth Juda, who were wonderful arts patrons, and they were very kind to me.

This piece, which suggests the lamentation of Apakura, (also a word meaning lamentation) was written after Hans died in 1974. Coincidentally the first performance took place on the first anniversary of his death — the piece is dedicated to his memory.
