’This splendid piece is exceptionally well written for amateur orchestra, as it can be sight-read with relative ease, allowing valuable rehearsal time to work on the nuances. It is tuneful, by turns stirring and lyrical, and is sure to work its enchantment on the casual and serious listener alike. I was recently present at a successful and well-received performance of King Eldred and recommend it to any orchestra looking for a reliable, short crowd-pleaser.’ Jill Elliott, violinist
First performed by the Radcliffe Orchestra, Oxford, March 2009, this piece is in three main sections: a march, a song, and a dance; with a short introduction to the first section.

’Charles McCreerys beautifully melodic, intricately textured compositions are infused with classical, romantic and folk idioms.’ Samantha Gillogly, violinist
