Originally written for a small orchestra it Is arranged here for double wind quintet and bass.

George Butterworth (1885-1916) was perhaps the most gifted of the British composers who were killed in the First World War. The Two English Idylls of 1910-1911 is his first surviving orchestral work and was first performed in Oxford in 1912. The delicacy and skill of his orchestration distinguish these folk song-based rhapsodies. In the first, three tunes are used, Dabbling in the dewJust as the tide was flowing and the lively Henry Martin. All were collected by Butterworth in Sussex.
His 2 English Idylls are the prequel to his "Third Idyll" - The Banks of Green Willow, which is perhaps his best known piece.
I have an arrangement of that piece for wind quintet.
