Flourish for an Occasion


Published in 1948, the Flourish for an Occasion dates from 1947, the year of the marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh. As its title suggests, its grand quasi-orchestral gestures make full use of the romantic organ, and Harris, a master of modulation and a true inheritor of the diatonic style and language of Parry, contrasts the heraldic material of the outer paragraphs with quieter poetic introspection in the central section.
