K. A. Wright 's ' Peddars Way ' is the most recent of a number of works written by the composer specially for Callender's Band. It was conceived during a visit to the now solitary Way that* runs across East Anglia from Thetford to the coast at Brancaster. This was already old when Roman legions marched on it ; a thousand years passed, and it bore pilgrims to Our Lady of Walsingham's shrine. Today it remains a ghost of a mighty road, shaded by giant trees, grown over with grass, abandoned to the birds and the wanderer. This Rhapsody has no programme, but it is made of themes which may suggest in turn the peace of the countryside, the passing of chattering pilgrims, the ring of a martial procession, and more than a hint of a rollicking folk dance.
