    I Vow To Thee, My Country

    Gustav Holst wrote his suite The Planets during the early years of the first world war. The expansive movement, Jupiter , contained a tune that Holst later used to set the poem by Cecil Spring-Rice, I Vow To Thee, My Country . Originally set for unison voices with orchestra, Holst adapted it as a hymn tune and called it Thaxted , named after the village where he lived for many years. The American composer, Geoff Knorr, incorporated Holst’s music into his score for the strategy-based video game Civilisation V, where it is used to depict the England of Elizabeth I. It is from this music that this transcription is made. Although originally written in 1908 and entitled Urbs Dei, Spring-Rice revisited the text of his poem in January 1918 and significantly altered both the first and second verses to reflect his feelings about the war, and those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. He also renamed the poem with the title we know today. Because of its sentiment, it has now become a staple of Remembrance services. A soundclip of this piece can be found here ?

    A Thames Journey - Phillip Littlemore

    The journey begins at the source of the River Thames at Kemble in Wiltshire - a horn solo introduces the main theme, Through the Groves , an eighteenth-century Wiltshire melody. A cornet fanfare announces the start proper, and the journey moves into Oxfordshire for morros dancing and then to Oxford itself, with, its dreaming spires and steeple bells. Trombones and basses pay tribute to the World Poohsticks Championships befor we reach Henley, and hints of a well-known boating song. We then travel through Windsor to Runneymede, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, and on to Hampton Court to hear henry VIII's Greensleeves . The Lass of Richmond Hill is heard through Barnes, where Gustav Holst lived, and hints of Jupiter sound and a tip of the hat to Lambeth as Big ben comes into view. Nostalgically London Bridge is remembered before arriving at Greenwich - starting point of many a heroic voyage. Smelling the sea salt in the air as the journey reaches its end, the Wiltshire melody proudly annouces our arrival at the ocean - the 'Thames Journey' is complete. This arrangement has been recorded by the Leyland Band, conducted by Michael Fowles, and appears on the CD The Alchymist’s Journal .?A sound clip of the piece can be found here Item Code: 0-571-56785-1 Duration: c.9'30"
