    SKU: BBBE170103

    A Lincolnshire Posy, considered Grainger's masterpiece, was composed for concert band in 1937. The work is composed of six movements, each adapted from folk songs that Grainger had collected on a 1905–1906 trip to Lincolnshire, England. Grainger maintained the personality and quirks of each singer he heard on his trip, creating a a musical portrait of the singer's personality and musical style.

     

    Rufford Park Poachers is the third movement of Lincolnshire Posy and a study in mixed meter counterpoint and color contrasts.
