For orchestra. Duration: 6 minutes and 30 seconds. "The title 'an icicle of moon' is a phrase from the great poem of Garcia Lorca, Romance Somnámbulo: ‘Un carámbano de luna la sostiene sobre el agua’ (An icicle of moon suspends her above the water). Scored for a small, essentially classical orchestra, the piece lasts about 6½ minutes." © Simon Holt. Score dedicated "to Harry Birtwistle at 80."
