This piece combines the simple, elegant thematic material of Elizabethan church composer Thomas Tallis, expanded and modernized through the luxurious harmonies of Ralph Vaughan Williams. A setting for band was long overdue, and Jay Bocook does a masterful job of transforming the original work for string orchestra into a magnificant setting for winds. Fantasia was used to great effect in the recent film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.
