“The Captain and the Purple Lady” for Full Orchestra (Grade 6+)

coverOn holiday in north Cornwall I came across an inscription on a wooden bench overlooking the sea.

It said “To the Captain and the Purple Lady”, with the motto: “The sun is always over the yardarm”

Perhaps the Captain must have gone down with his boat “The Purple Lady”? This caught my imagination and I composed a piece for full orchestra using this title – a journey on the high seas.
