ALICE Moxon (Soprano)
Livio MANNucci (Violoncello)
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL THE speetacular play, The Miracle, was produced a few years before the war. The Suite made from it contains five Movements-a Prelude, Procession and Children's Dance, Banquet Scene and Nuns' Dance, March of the Army and Death Motif, and Christmas Scene and Finale, Act I
THIS is what Grainger, in his own free-and-easy language, tells us of his racy
Mock Morris :— ' No folk-music tune-stuffs at all are used herein. The rhythmic cost of the piece is Morris-like, but neither the build of the tunes nor the general lay-out of the form keeps to the Morris-Dance shape.'
Molly on the Shore is the name of an old Irish reel, and the composer has made his piece out of this and another reel, Temple Hill. His use of the orchestra will be found to be vivid and highly coloured. Percy Grainger was born at Melbourne in 1883, but during the war took on American nationality. One of his friendships is commemorated in the British Folk Music Settings, of which this piece is one; they are ' lovingly and reverently dedicated to the memory of Edward Grieg. ' This particular piece is also inscribed ' Birthday gift to Mother, 1907.'
