Romance and Pastorale
composer
circa 1914

Introduction
The Romance and Pastorale for violin and piano were probably written before the First World War although they were not published until 1923. They are dedicated to ‘D.M.L.’ – Dorothy Longman, wife of the publisher R J Longman. For many years she was a violinist in the Leith Hill Festival orchestra under VW’s conductorship. The Romance is, as one would expect, lyrical while the Pastorale is modal.
