CDD/1/2/13 Amor Dei/The Dreams backgrounds
Backgrounds used in the Bermange Inventions

MEDIUM: 10.5" reel, ¼" tape
DURATION: 00:24:56
LABELS: [Reel label, Brian Hodgson's hand:] AMOR DEI BG/S
NOTES: Very high quality copies of backgrounds for the first 2 Inventions for radio. 4 bands of backgrounds for Amor Dei, the 'movements' being in order (opening section; “Rorate coeli” texture of second movement); 'descending' gestures).
Then, one for The Dreams, the fourth movement (beginning at 14'55" of DD015, “It wasn't a stormy sea but it was a frightening sea”). Note that this background is very similar but not identical to The Delian Mode (BBC Radiophonic Music).
This followed by an unknown texture (21'34") with a distinct heartbeat rhythm, similar to that used in the Dublin Macbeth production (CDD/1/4/14 Macbeth for Dublin (copy), CDD/1/4/13 Macbeth for Dublin)
