Dedicated to the memory of Percy Grainger, all my folksong suites use folk-songs in a variation or passacaglia-like form. The original folksongs come from Great Britain. The titles of the 3rd Suite are: 1. Droylsden Wakes - a simple verse and chorus setting with rich romantic harmonies; 2. Lord Bateman - a fast-moving and virtuosic multi-metre setting; 3. Three Ships & Lisbon - a sound-picture of a group of troubadours approaching a coastal town, the Three Ships melody eventually overwhelming their own tunes.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, clarinet in E flat, 3 clarinets in B flat, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet in B flat, 2 bassoons, soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, 4 trumpets, 4 horns in F, 3 trombones, euphonium, tuba, timpani, percussion (3 players).
