It’s great when you find a moment to stop, when some space opens up where you are briefly free of any responsibilities and jobs. I get very excited when this happens, especially if it is unexpected, and I get a moment to do what I want. In amongst it all, some occasional moments of respite (2023), the organist has three parallel looping lines that create many different paths to follow. They must navigate a route through each of the lines, with the feet and each hand working independently, trying to find a point of rest where all three parts coincide. The piece is a labyrinth, with the organist making choices that impact on the efficiency with which they manage to locate these places of repose.

Written for Huw Morgan and first performed by him at mainly slow organ music, All Saints Clifton, Bristol on 15 April 2023
