Folk song and the life of the countrvside-these are the dominant influences in the music of George Butterworth , who was killed in the last war at the age of 31. ' The Banks of Green Willow first performed in 1913, is scored for a small orchestra of wood-wind, horns, trombone, harp, and strings. It is built upon two folk tunes. The first, that which gives the work its title, is heard on the clarinet. ' Green Bushes ', the other tune (in the minor key), is given out by the oboe.

This programme presents some very interesting and beautiful examples of the old traditional form of the serenade as treated by modern composers. The most outstanding is, of course, the Serenade by Elgar, which is a little masterpiece of pure melody and delicate writing.
Warlock's Serenade, which was written in honour of Delius's sixtieth birthday, is composed in the style of the latter master, but it is nevertheless strongly stamped with Warlock's own individuality.
The Glazunov Serenade is more classical in style than the works of Elgar and Warlock.
