When I was in high school concert band, we performed "Lincolnshire Posy" by Percy Aldridge Grainger. One of the movements, titled "Lost Lady Found", inspired me to create a similar sounding piece.
My cousin, Norm, had sent me a Yamaha PSR-38 keyboard as a gift for getting through high school. Eager to try out its orchestra sounds, I sampled some strings and horns into MED and wrote a fantasy-inspired track based on the Grainger tune.
The 'story' of this track is that of a mythological nymph dancing alone by the riverside. Gradually more creatures come out and join in her dance while a stranger observes from the cover of a nearby forest.
This piece was most likely written in the fall of 1993, just as I was starting University. I released the track for the first time in 1995 on Aminet.
