The Lake and the Hinterland
Stay close now as winter’s
White fuse burns across
The lake and the hinterland

(excerpt from Late Autumn Lullaby by Ross Baglin)

A hinterland is a district behind a coast, or river’s banks with the suggestion of sparse population. The full text to Baglin’s poem is one I had already set for voice, and the resonance of that setting continues in this piece for symphonic wind ensemble.
