Quintet for String Quartet and Double Bass 1991
Britten Quartet & Duncan McTier (double bass)
I must write to say how much I enjoyed your Quintet. What an unusual combination!
SIR MICHAEL TIPPETT
A wide-ranging work providing a measure of challenge for each of the musicians, (David McTier and the Britten Quartet), and a great deal of satisfaction for the listener.

Here was a piece which stood up on its own feet, requiring no explanation or justification. The Quintet was broad enough in conception to hold the audience’s interest throughout, but at the same time it was straightforward enough to be understood at a first hearing.
