Programme Note
Judith Weir Arise! Arise! You Slumbering Sleepers (1999)
Arise! Arise! , for piano quartet, was written for the Schubert Ensemble/Chamber Music 2000 in 1999. It is based on an English/American folksong called 'Arise! Arise! you slumbering sleepers'., which is heard in fragments against a bell-like ostinato. I have dedicated the piece to Margaret Semple, who taught me music, in the most inspiring way, when I was at school.
