Piano Trio 'The Devil and St Stephen' (1991)

Commissioned by the Leda trio and first performed in 1992.

The composer writes:
The work is based on two tunes which I also used in the chamber opera 'The Mellstock Quire' and the orchestral song-cycle 'Homage to Thomas Hardy'.  These are the reel 'Devil among the Tailors' and the hymn tume 'St Stephen.  Hence the work's subtitle, 'The Devil and St Stephen.
