A Somerset Lament and Reel is cast of original melodic ideas in ABA form (slow-fast-slow) with modal tonality and a feel akin to the native music of the British Isles. It is not a programmatic work, but rather pays homage to British composer George Sainton Kay Butterworth who died while in battle during WWI. Special background notes are included in the score. Duration: 5:25
