    Rufford Park Poachers is the third movement of Lincolnshire Posy by Percy Grainger. It is a ballad captured by Grainger from the singing of Joseph Taylor.


    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.
