Vaughan Williams' work represents the height of English Post-Romanticism after the turn of the century, which was characterized by fervent nationalistic spirit and a corresponding surge of interest in discovering, preserving, and performing traditional folk music. This arrangement includes elements of "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis," A Sea Symphony, "Linden Lea," and "Overture to The Wasps," all seamlessly intertwined.
