Water Violet: Remedy from the set of the Twelve Healers
About this music
One of the simplest and shortest of the pieces, not yet realised in performance (as of May 2009)
Written in F major in a mixture of 4/4 and 3/2 time.
Lots of open fifths give a feeling of folk music.
This is a piece with lots of potential for a wide variety of instrumental arrangements.

About Water Violet, the Bach Flower Remedy
Water Violet grows actually submerged in water. Life originated in water and migrated to dry land, but plants like WV moved from the land back into water. It follows that such species are more highly evolved. As plant forms they have a longer ancestry of adaptation reaching back through geological ages of time. WV has a sophisticated system of avoiding self-fertilization. WV is a member of the primrose family.
Bach wrote of the WV soul type :
These are very beautiful people in mind and often in body. They are gentle, quiet, very refined and cultured and yet are masters of their fate and lead their lives with a quiet determination and certainty.
WV has always been relatively scarce growing only in slow-moving but pure water, in ditches and ponds where it will not be disturbed. It is fastidious and cannot bear any form of pollution. It does not like competition and will withdraw to water where it can spread out undisturbed. WV people will withdraw into their own space and do not like intrusion. But there is more here than a desire for peace and solitude – it is a symbol of the transition to a higher plane of being. Souls that are older and wiser than the rest of us!
Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant
Only the frailest of roots – a few fine white threads dangling from the green stems. They only serve to absorb minerals for the plant and do not anchor it to the land – WV has freedom. A rosette of leaves looks like a green star in the water, delicate and refined, yet somehow inspiring and exciting. But if the pool dries up in high summer, the roots then play a more important part anchoring the plant to the mud keeping it alive by transmitting moisture. WVs are capable of asserting themselves and will not tolerate interference from others. This is equally indicative of the growth and gain for WV people if they ever fully involve themselves in the physical world.
‘The beautiful Water Violet, which floats so freely on the surface of our clearest streams, will help you………to stand absolutely alone in the world, gaining the intense joy of complete freedom’
The soul difficulty for WV types is pride and aloofness; the lesson is that of ‘perfect service to mankind’. Bach described it as a contrast between joy and grief. These are souls who know their work in life and do it with a quiet certain will. They have experience and know what this work brings. But these people come somewhat reluctantly into life – they know well the vicissitudes of the world and have striven to leave them behind. But simple human duty obliges them to return to assist their fellows – it is this commitment to turn back and become involved in the world which leads to the intense joy of complete freedom.
The seeds of WV sink to the mud, germinate and then the young plant rises back to the surface of the water. So even at the beginning the seedlings move freely in the water and do not take root. WV children, often wise beyond their years, are often independent of their family. Such children, born into families which do not recognise and understand their need for privacy and solitude, can become deeply unhappy. Arbitrary control, emotional manipulation and falseness are particularly upsetting to WV people.
WV is increasingly difficult to find because of modern farming methods, the draining of marshes, the amount of water taken away for cities. Perhaps the loss of flowers like WV is reflected by the increasing rareness of WV soul types in our society.
