No Holly for Miss Quinn
A partner piece to ‘Miss Clare Remembers’ (Watermark). ‘No Holly For Miss Quinn’ was prompted by another Miss Read story. The idyllic descriptions of country and village life and the simple portraits of those who peopled such settings had appeal to Enya. In composing this music she recaptures the naivety and innocence of an age and place far removed from the whirl and pressure of our sophisticated society and suggests that we need to dip into that world from time to time.
