Here Bruce Paine presents a 2017 recording of his most popular guitar solo Finchdean, ten years after composing the piece and releasing the premiere recording on his album Lateral Lines.

This guitar solo sums up musically a visit by the composer to the hamlet Finchdean, on the Hampshire/Sussex border in the South of England in the summer of 2005. A walk through nearby fields led to the 14th century chapel at Idsworth, and this composition captures that day.

Isolated and settled serenely amid the cornfields “The Little Church in the Field” St Huberts Chapel built in 1053 by Earl Godwin of Wessex is a fascinating focal point for walkers visiting the area. Tremolo effects in the opening and closing sections of Finchdean represent the swirling and waving textures of wheat fields. Halfway into the piece the mood changes with figures that imitate the sound of a bell ringing in the distance, as if summoning the visitor to enter the church.
