Stately, elegant, and stimulating. The Prelude is a master work scored by a master composer. A wonderful piece to learn about how to balance continuously moving lines. It is the 'individualism' of Grainger's carefully notated interpretive artistry that sets this piece apart from other band arrangements.

Antonio de Cabezon (Spanish 1520-1566) was on of the 16th century's greatest keyboard performers and composers. Blind from infancy, born of noble parents, be became composer and organist to the court of Charles and Isabella. Later he served Phillip II, with whom he traveled throughout Europe. His music is richly polyphonic. Although he composed primarily for keyboard instruments, his music also possesses a haunting vocal quality.
