Premiered by Patricia Siffert at the Holywell Music Room in Oxford on May Day morning 1994. Since then it has received various concert performances in London, around the Uk and in Switzerland. It was broadcast on BBC radio in the Midlands.
It is recorded by Patricia on the CD
"On Wings of Light"

"We were profoundly impressed by your composition and Patricia's performance.. Awakenings creates for the listener that wonderful 'suspension of time', the experience of which brings both delight and refreshment to the spirit. "
Morag Hunter-Carsch and Dr Henry Carsch

"These imaginative pieces entitled 'Awakenings', 'On Wings of Light', and 'Entrance' were being played together for the first time. They bear a strong family resemblance with characteristically shifting harmonies and  hypnotic ostinatos. Debussy, Liszt and just occasionally Brahms were called to mind, yet there is an individual and appealing voice in this evocative music. Each prelude is a substantial work quite capable of standing alone."
Neil Crutchley, music critic, Leicester Mercury
