Product details

Green Bushes is a passacaglia on an English folk-song collected in Somerset by Cecil Sharp. With the exception of a momentary break, the 'Green Bushes' tune is heard constantly throughout the work pitted against a multitude of original counter-melodies. This setting was the first time a British folk-song had been treated in the passacaglia form, an innovation that Grainger avers led Delius to write his Brigg Fair and Dance Rhapsodies in a similar way.
