Blue Remembered Hills—Lament for Rosemary Sutcliff | By Steafan Hannigan

Rosemary Sutcliff’s favourite instrument was the bagpipes. At my invitation, Steafan Hannigan, musician and composer, generously composed a fine lament for Rosemary Sutcliff shortly after her unexpected death in 1992. It was played  at the memorial service for her in Novemeber 1992 at St James, Piccadilly— on some uelliann pipes.
