A Severn Rhapsodyop. 3 (1923)
for chamber orchestra
Boosey & Hawkes
This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.
This early work, akin to Butterworth’s A Shropshire Lad rhapsody, was cited as "a picturesque and imaginative composition" and given a Carnegie publication award in 1924. With its luminous textures and obvious folksong influences, the music has the strongest English resonance to appeal to and stimulate the imagination of an audience.
