As I listened to "The Light of the World" again the more convinced I am that the work is a masterpiece! And what a glorious final chorus😁.
Utter heresy I know....but I wish Sullivan had written fewer operettas and more of this sort of music.

A superb new book has been published covering the range of music and literature of Cyril Scott, The Cyril Scott Companion, edited by Desmond Scott, Lewis Foreman and Leslie De'ath all of whom have worked tirelessly to get Scott's music back before the public. There are also significant contributions from Martyn Brabbins and Martin Yates who have revived Scott's major scores on Chandos and Dutton respectively. This is a substantial tome at over 700 pages and beautifully produced with many rare photographs and musical examples:

I payed just over 36 on Amazon... well worth the investment.

I'd like to present to you my Symphony in C minor and I would very much appreciate your impressions - thank you! 

I. Andante /Allegro con brio ed appassionato (C Major / C minor)


0:01 Andante, a choral, first in solemn C Major by solo horns, later tragically turning into C minor
2:54 Allegro con brio ed appassionato, C minor, 6/8, Exposition
6:33 Development
9:16 Recapitulation
12:57 Coda
  14:38 resuming the choral theme
  15:07 Presto  (score)

II. Andante cantabile
An Andante with 7 variations on the theme which Beethoven sketched for the second movement of his planned 10th symphony in 1825.

III. Scherzo

Among Beethoven's sketches for a 10th symphony from 1825 there are the opening 24 measures for a Scherzo (titled 'Presto') and the 7 measure theme for a  Trio as a middle part of the movement. This Scherzo theme is one of the most furious and powerful Scherzo themes I know, somewhat a mixture of the Scherzo themes of his fith symphony  and Schummann's first symphony. I made an atttempt to develop these themes to a whole symphonic movement.


My realisation:

IV.  Allegro con spirito

The Finale is the most vivid and jubilent movement I wrote so far. In the development (starting at 4:30) more dark and exotic colours come in:

Graunke's violin concerto is available on YouTube:

The first two movements are rather unmemorable, but the jaunty finale is worth hearing.
