Alpine Pastures
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Vivian Ellis (1903–1996), a Londoner, was one of Britain’s leading theatre-composers between the Wars who likewise turned to light-orchestral composition. Coronation Scot (1948) has become a classic, but Alpine Pastures (1955) was scarcely less familiar at one time through its use as signature tune of the long-running radio series My Word. We hear it in the original orchestration by Sidney Torch (1908–1990).
