By John Hooper

This is a piece in the Epidavros suite.  The first piece (see 'Epidavros') evokes the early twinkling light on the sea.  This 'Morning' piece takes us on to some of the later bustle on the quayside.  I have set tempo at 140, but this is really a minimum, and it is intended that this piece can be gradually accelerated throughout, - though, as ever, it is a matter for the performer.

And this is another short-stretch piece, with just 2 brief barrés and one brief half-barré.   Bars 10, 16 (and its repeat in bar 22) feature the same slight stretch, but only over 2 frets.  There are no other stretches of any difficulty, and so this piece can be played by those with small hands.  I have set the left-hand fingering to minimise both stretch and movement, and this allows a brisk tempo.

Bar 27 features some harmonics played on fret 12 with open strings. 

Bars 16 onwards have two parts: the upper part is to be played with more volume than the lower.
