Does anyone know what this tune is  called?   I thought of it yesterday and for the life of me I have no idea what it is.     I have not heard it played in a few years and would like to find it to listen to

 

thanks

I think it's Elizabethan Serenade.

Yes it is thanks.

 

It is never played on Radio 3 or Classic FM

 

It is a nice tune and it is nice to hear it again.

Ah, the Elizabethan Serenade! Lovely tune which I remember as a child was often played on the radio (big box with valves!)
Or was it also used as theme music for some documentary?

This was one of my parents' favourite things to listen to. It was on an Adrian Brett flute cassette that they had- "Echoes of Gold"

Elizabethan Serenade features regularly on Classic FM (last broadcast at 5.11pm on 14th October), but Radio 3 rarely plays salon-style light music.

I hadn't heard this for years.. Brings back  memories of a fifties childhood - Festival of Britain and all that.

Nice piece - loved by my old grandad so I'm inclined to like it.
I can't stand Sailing By, though - same composer.
How do I always manage to be brushing my teeth with the bathroom radio on when this irritating tune heralds the shipping forecast?

Gosh! Not heard it for years!  You know, I never realised Elizabethan Serenade was referring to the present Queen's age.  I always thought it was Gloriana and the Golden Age.  And I'm sure there was a Caribbean reggae version of used as a backing to some TV programme years ago.

For some bizarre reason I only like the orchestration, in particular the vibrato of the vibraphone punctuating through the fabric of sound.  Yes, I know, I'm odd.

 

I miss the BBC Radio UK Theme.

They'd have had to be mighty clever to do that. It's in duple time (6/8) and was written six years after the end of the second world war. :rolleyes:
