The Late Philip Radcliffe



Transcription of the above letter

KING'S COLLEGE
CAMBRIDGE

May 29th 1974.

CHURCHILL

By Norman Rutherlyn
Orchestrated by Derek Barnes

This is an ambitious work, planned on a large scale and designed to illustrate the career of Sir Winston Churchill in all its aspects. The music does not attempt to use an "advanced" idiom, which would indeed hardly be suitable for its subject. But it is sincere and sensitive and the orchestration by Derek Barnes is extremely able.

Several portions of the work, such as the Churchill March and the Chartwell Suite, could stand upon their own feet as separate items, but to make its full effect, the work should be heard in its entirety. To arrange a complete performance would be a formidable undertaking, but would in my opinion be worth the attempt.

Philip Radcliffe.
