Written in 1951, this piece lasts approximately just 2 minutes. Led off by an oboe, it is joined by the entire orchestra and has been described as having a “delicate, fragile melody”. It was released as a 78rpm and 45rpm single, often with “Phantom Regiment” on the B-Side with a further vinyl release in EP form.
