These pieces were composed while Ritchie was a second year student at Canterbury University, in 1980. They received their first performance at the Cambridge Summer Music school later that year. The three movements, lasting 9 minutes, are entitled Agitation, Resignation and Desperation, and show a willingness to explore free-tonal effects to create a restless quality in the music. Resignation is a Shostakovich-like passacaglia, based on a 12-note theme, while the opening movement features changing metres.
