Prelude in B flat minor is a short, sharp and slightly whimsical piece. The first section flies between fast semiquaver sequences and a syncopated theme, which is present throughout the piece in different forms. In complete contrast, the second is a gentle meander through the tonic major in 7/8, before hints of the initial theme of the prelude return for a dramatic finish.
Prelude in B flat minor premiered at the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music in May 2023.
