Work Overview

Miriam Hyde wrote about this Fantasia: "The well-known tune, Waltzing Matilda, is treated freely, though there is no doubt that its identity would be apparent to even the casual, untrained listener. Its two main features are the opening repeated note figure. Once a jolly swagman, and the final arching phrase, I'll go a-waltzing Matilda with you."
