Songs of Four seasons were composed during the summer of 1996 and first performed in a recital at Hull University by Delia Fletcher and the composer on 16th February 1997. The composer's programme note for that occasion was as follows:
These short settings were written in response to comments by several singing teachers concerning the lack of contemporary repertoire within the scope of student singers. Their texts not only reflect the seasons of the year but also the seasons of life. It would have been perhaps natural - though not artistically satisfactory - to chart a gradual decline from youth to old age. But in selecting and setting the final poem I had in mind Dylan Thomas's line "Rage, rage, against the dying of the light", and Winter brings a closing fierce flare before the closing line of the text finally faces the ineluctable hand of fate. (Incidentally, in the text of the third song James Joyce's use of "gay"is in the original sense of the word.)
