About the Composition

October Morn was inspired by the beautifully atmospheric Dorset countryside as I was driving towards the village of Milborne Port in early October 2015. The mist was still hovering over the fields, as the cows were slowly waking and beginning to eat, and as the sun was gently starting to break through the clouds. The opening oboe notes 'appeared' as I drove and the piece slowly emerged as my journey continued with its modal and slow-moving music gradually taking shape." [David Heyes]

October Morn is scored for oboe (or flute) and double bass and is both atmospheric and rhapsodic, utilizing a wealth of colors of the solo double bass.

The edition is in D minor and E minor.

Double Bass plays D minor version for either tuning

The flute plays D minor version if the double bass is in orchestral tuning or E minor if solo tuning is used.
