Video of Fantasia on a West-country Tune

Here is a video made from the performance of the new wind quintet version of Fantasia on a West-country Tune, (Op. 36a), recorded on 17 February 2017 in the Church of St Mary’s Riverside, Putney, London. The players are members of the London Myriad Ensemble.

This work is also available in two brass quartet versions: either 2 cornets, tenor horn and euphonium (brass band transpositions), or 2 trumpets in Bb, horn in F and tuba (orchestral transpositions) from Music for Brass. Additionally there is a version for clarinet, alto saxophone and two trombones. Any enquiries about this or the wind quintet version to me.

  1. I really enjoyed this piece. I love folk music and this is a lovely arrangement in the tradition of Grainger, Vaughan-Williams and Butterworth . The musicians play together so well – the acoustics and sound balance are all exemplary. Thank you, David. I will seek out more of your music.

  2. Thanks very much for the compliments Clifford. If you are within reach of London, you may be interested to know that this piece will be performed again at Lauderdale House, Highgate on 15 September 2017 at 7:30pm.
