Malcolm Arnold - English Dances

It's an English Bank Holiday weekend. After endless rain the weather is glorious. But nature hasn't forgotten the bad weather. This photo, taken a few minutes ago, shows the first autumn crocuses appearing in our garden here in East Anglia.

More English sunshine on my Overgrown Path radio programme this afternoon on Future Radio at 5.00pm UK time, with Sir Malcolm Arnold's English Dances Set 1, Guitar Concerto, and suite from the film Hobson's Choice. Click here for the audio stream.

Now read about a neglected 20th century masterpiece.
