Passing Time in an Ancient Woodland by Catherine Wilson has a sense of nostalgia and history with allusions to a different time.  


The modal key helps to create an oldy-worldy quality, while the contrasting sections of spirited and more graceful melodies help convey the idea of past battles fought and romantic liaisons pursued.
