The Berceuse for the Mary Rose for woodwind quintet was composed in February 2004. The inspiration for the piece came from a visit to the Mary Rose ship hall in Portsmouth, England. The composer was able to view the ghostly inner hull of the ship, which remains submerged in sea water. In this short historical fantasy piece, the listener too is with the Mary Rose as it is displayed in this condition. Thus the piece begins in a ghostly, grey and mysterious mood. Gradually the story of the famous ship unfolds. With the introduction of an authentic part song by Henry VIII himself, “Past-time with Good Company”, the listener is quite suddenly transported to the year 1545. An impression of sights, sounds and smells are portrayed as the ultimate destiny of the Mary Rose arrives. As if awakening from a dream, we are left staring at the silent wreck of the ship. The Berceuse for the Mary Rose was commissioned by Members of the Cinq Beaufort Woodwind Quintet of Rotterdam.
