Performance by David Carlston WIlliams for CD in June 2015.This is one of 5 organ pieces written specially for the performer.It a curious and comical piece in 11 time (3, 3, 3, 2 - count it!). It comes from the legend of Robin Hood, in which Robin meets the bishop of Hereford, who had hoped to get the better of him, but Robin prevails and forces him to dance. The clumsy attempts of the ungainly Bishop to obey Robin's commands cause great merriment among the merry men.The clattery trills on the low pedal notes reflect the slipping and sliding of the poor bishop on the mossy ground of Sherwood forest.
