Publication status

By permission of the Master & Fellows of St John's College, Cambridge
We acknowledge the help we have received from the staff of the Library of St. John's College, in providing scanned images of the manuscript full score.

Using these images of the original manuscript, Mark Pearse has now produced the first typeset version of the full score. We are most grateful to Mark for this achievement, and we intend to publish the work during 2019 - almost 100 years since it was composed.

About this recording

As yet there are no performance recordings of this work, so we can only play a synthesised MP3 file generated from the typeset score. Thanks are due to Stewart Thompson, who used the NotePerformer software to produce this excellent recording which does justice to the orchestration.
