circa 1914

It has been impossible to assign a date to the Romance for viola and piano, which may have been intended for Lionel Tertis. For publication in 1962 the viola part was edited by Bernard Shore and the piano part by Eric Gritton. They gave the first performance in London on 19 January 1962.
