All in Green Went my Love Riding was commissioned by Susanna Graham-Jones for her father, Michael, on the occasion of his 88th birthday. Michael was a great music lover and supporter of the arts commissioning new pieces from Robin Holloway and Stuart MacRae. This piece is based on the poem by E E Cummings which describes a rider, dressed in green with bow and horn riding into the silver dawn accompanied by his hounds and seemed to chime with Michael's pioneering and positive spirit.
