This 5 minute work was composed as a small gesture of thanks from me to Martin Hayes for the inspirational music he has created with Dennis Cahill and for the great friendship and encouragement they gave to me when we worked together between 2005 and 2015.

It begins with a mournful slow air style music, with hints of Arvo Part, before moving into a fast, jig style movement, with influences from Zimbabwean Chimurenga music.
