Folk By Arrangement

The theme today is (main­ly) orches­tral arrange­ments of British folk tunes. You’ll hear some old favourites like Vaugh­an Williams’ Eng­lish Folk Song Suite, pieces by Holst and the Fan­ta­sia on Eng­lish Sea Songs, but also less well-known pieces like Philip Lane’s suite of Cotswold Dances and the delight­ful arrange­ments of Play­ford tunes by Ernest Tom­lin­son. Plus some engag­ing light clas­si­cal pieces.
