In What Time Remains (2005) for brass quintet was written for the French brass ensemble Brass Concept. It is dedicated to them and in memory of Ron Frewin.
The work is a elegaic nocturne in one movement. At the beginning, the lower instruments emerge from the gently pulsing texture of the two trumpets and build towards small arrival points. The second section of the work is in a flowing triple meter and moves towards a joyous climax. A quiet and simple duet between trumpet and horn is echoed by trombone and tuba before the final extended section, which recalls and expands the opening material. The work ends peacefully.
