The 1903 Wind Quintet is a fluent and tuneful piece from what his daughter called his 'long and painful' apprenticeship. The origins of this work are surrounded in mystery, as is its survival. For many years the whereabouts of the manuscript was unknown but in 1978 it surfaced in the Surrey History Centre. The work was first published in 1983 but in a truncated version; 44 bars were cut from the first movement and 32 from the second.
