      A sequence of six original poems by well-known novelist Alexander McCall Smith (author of "The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series and many other novels) set to music by Tom Cunningham.
      Alexander McCall Smith writes:- "A Time of Gifts is my third collaboration with the composer, Tom Cunningham. Some years ago I was invited to write a series of short pieces about giving for a concert in St Paul’s Cathedral in London. For that I wrote a number of very short stories – a few lines long in each case. This work represents a development of that idea, in which I have tried to say something in verse about what it is to give to others. Giving brings people into a relationship with one another that recognizes shared humanity and vulnerability. But one should not be too solemn about giving: sometimes gifts are unwanted, or awkward, or, as in one of these poems, they insist on coming back!"

      The six pieces are:-
      Thoughts that come to mind
      The only gift
      My love gave me a cat
      A gift of time
      Fitting gifts
      His and hers
      Duration c.12 minutes
