Concluding programme of the West Sussex
Choral Competition
Relayed from the Payilion, Bognor
With the exception of the Second Item, all the works are by composers who are connected with Sussex
THIS is an early and rarely played work of its well-known composer. The tune is a familiar one, and appears after a short introduction that concludes with a Cadenza-like passage on the solo instruments. The Variations (ten in number) are well contrasted, and the attentive ear should find little difficulty in following the course of the melody.
THIS Rhapsody was inspired by a view of Selsey Bill in the sunlight on a bright autumn morning. The music is expressive of the gently undulating sea, while underneath is heard the tolling of the bells of the original Cathedral of Chichester, now beneath the waves.
THIS was written for the Worcester Festival, and is dedioated to Sir Ivor Atkins. Although original in design, it betrays a certain influence of Parry-notably in its moments of intense poignancy. Its composer is Music Master at Lancing College.
