Vaughan Williams composed three 'Norfolk Rhapsodies' in 1906. Nos. 2 and 3 - now sadly lost - were actually performed at a concert in London's Queen's Hall on 17 April 1912 under Balfour Gardiner just days after the "Titanic" disaster. The First Rhapsody was given its premiere on 23 August 1906 at the same locale under Henry Wood's baton. The composer made a number of revisions to the work before a second performance took place (21 May 1914) in Bournemouth. This newly engraved edition by Richard Sargeant is based upon the revised 1914 score.
