An original composition for wind quintet based on 2 Northumbrian traditional tunes: "Blow the Wind Southerly", and "When the boat comes in" The melody moves around all the individual instruments, rather than only the flute. I have used "when the boat" as a counter melody. I have tried to write this in the "English Pastoral Style" as composed by George Butterworth and Ralph Vaughan Williams."Blow the Wind Southerly" tells the tale of a woman desperately hoping for a southerly wind to blow her lover back home over the ocean to her. Kathleen Ferrier recorded what is perhaps the best-known version of the song in London in 1949. "When the boat comes in" was popularised as the theme tune to the 1970s BBC drama serial "When The Boat Comes In " That them tune was arranged by the composer David Fanshawe.The series was set in North East England during the 20s/30s. It is also known as "Dance to your Daddy".
