COTW - English Pastoralists - Week of 13 August 2012
I was annoyed to have only listened to the fifth of these five programmes.
- What are the chances of a repeat please?
- Are there any plans to create an accessible COTW archive? We have then now for BAL, DID, jazz and world.
You've got about 8 hours to hear last Friday's programme! Perhaps a repeat could be arranged for 'The Festive Season'. One discovery for me was a piece called (I think) 'North Country Sketches' by Arthur Butterworth, who was apparently dubbed 'The English Sibelius' at one time.
Isn't that the one he caught?

Thank you Flosshilde and Northender. Yes, as cloughie says, I heard last Friday's one. What I have done is find on Spotify a lot of the music on the programme playlists so that I can listen to it at a convenient time. But a repeat would be good!

Thats George Butterworthwho died in the first world war, I suspect the piece was by Arthur B
... now, I don't like Arthur Butterworth - but I don't like George Butterworth...

The correct title of the Arthur Butterworth piece which is I mentioned is 'Northern Summer Nights' (his Opus 18). The featured recording was by the RSNO, conducted by the composer.
However you choose, more than Stork!
