or The Sailor's Return
A Dramatic Pastoral composed by Dr. Arne.

The BBC Television Orchestra
Leader, Boris Pecker
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

Arne's sister, Susanna Maria, became famous as Mrs. Cibber, one of the greatest tragic actresses of the day. It was for her that he reset Addison's opera Rosamond, produced at Lincoln's Inn Fields Theatre in 1773. This was the forerunner of many important compositions for the stage, one of which was Thomas and Sally. It was first performed in London in 1760.
