Albion, the Latin name for the island of Great Britain, is a thrilling prelude based in the well-known tune "Scarborough Fair." A sparse, ethereal introduction leads into an aggressive Allegro section where fragments of the original tune are developed and transformed. Energetic rhythms, engaging harmonies and driving eighth- and sixteenth-note passage make Albion a wonderful work for concerts and contests.
