I thought I had finished this one several weeks ago, but when I published it on Soundcloud, it didn't sound right. I've tweaked it a little and extended the opening section: I am happier with it now.

The inspiration behind "Aspens" is GM Hopkins' Binsey Poplars, which laments the chopping down of some much loved trees. The opening section, mentioned above is supposed to represent the "airy cages (which)...quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun".
