"The Banner of St. George" (Elgar)

This Ballad for Chorus and Orchestra was written about 1897 - some two years before there appeared the Enigma Variations (the first of Elgar's mature, large scale works). The poem, by Shapcott Wensley, is a concise treatment of the well-known legend of St. George and the Dragon. There are two Scenes and an Epilogue.
