Shropshire Lad, A. George Butterworth, arr for Brass Band by Duncan Wilson


Having attended the Royal College of Music in London as an organ scholar—where he assisted Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams with their research into English folk music—Butterworth returned to his native Northeast England.  A meticulous craftsman, Butterworth only produced a handful of works, including a song-cycle A Shropshire Lad—after the tragic, eerily-prophetic war poems by A.E. Housman—in 1912.
