The Brook Sings Loud was commissioned by the Aberdeen Chamber Music Club for the Kungsbacka Trio.
"As this was one of the first pieces that the Club commissioned, I thought it would be appropriate for the piece to have some sort of Scottish theme or influence. I have always been interested in Pibroch (Piobaireachd) - classical bagpipe music that was prevalent from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries in the Scottish Highlands. I have not attempted to imitate the sound of the bagpipes; however, I have been influenced by some of the techniques associated with this music." Helen Grime
