Strong on Oaks, Strong on the Causes of Oaks

Strong on Oaks, Strong on the Causes of Oaks, written in 1997, was commissioned from Nyman by the English Sinfonia The work he gave them is a five-movement orchestral work based on the String Quartet No 4, which in turn was based on the solo violin work, Yamamoto Perpetuo

The title is derived from the name of the town of Stevenage, where the Sinfonia moved in 1997 The Anglo-Saxon name of the town, "Sithenaece" means "Strong on Oaks" Nyman then took a cue from Tony Blair's campaign slogan in fact coined by Gordon Brown, "Tough on Crime, Tough on the Causes of Crime"

He dedicated the work to Simon Jeffes, founder of the Penguin Café Orchestra, and a friend and colleague Jeffes died on December 11, 1997 Nyman was orchestrating the final page when he learned of his death, and in honor of him, styled 4-note pizzicato chords in the style of Jeffes's ukulele work

The Protecting Veil

The Protecting Veil is a work composed by John Tavener in 1987 and premiered in 1989, based on his conversion from the Anglican Church to the Eastern Orthodox Church It is scored for strings with a solo cello, but unlike in a concerto, the cello part is an "endless arch" in the style of music from Byzantium rather than being virtuosic
