Song of the Jasmine Fairy (2023) by Eleanor Haward


For chamber ensemble

Duration c. 5 minutes


Instrumentation: Flute | Oboe | Bassoon | Trumpet | Violin | Violoncello


This work is inspired by the artwork and poem 'Song of the Jasmine Fairy' by Cicely Mary Barker:

The poem tells the story of a hazy summer’s day which then cools to reveal the fragrance of jasmine flowers. The artwork holds great significance in Eleanor's life as they hold a connection to her late mother. In her childhood home she remembers the 'fairy plates' on the walls around the house - each with artwork by Cicely Mary Barker of a different flower fairy. She later discovered the poems that accompany the artwork and set 'Song of the Jasmine Fairy' for the ensemble Any Enemy based in Aberdeen.
