The Butterfly (Roars) - (Score and Parts)Claire Petherick
"The Butterfly" is originally an Irish slip-jig, played in a gently lilting style. This version breaks away from the traditional style. It represents a kind of mental transformation, where the delicate gives way to a more determined and gutsy performance and where the unknown path reveals some unexpected moments of joy and excitement.
