Frederick Delius wrote in a unique and often lush and exotic musical voice during the early years of the 20th century, his compositions often requiring an extravagantly large orchestra. Having migrated from his native England to Florida in 1884 as an orange planter, he abandoned the farm after a year to teach music and play the organ. He settled permanently in France by 1888 and enjoyed great popularity in England. The mostly orchestral works on this CD have been transcribed by Dom Gregory Murray, Robert Hebble, Eric Fenby, Percy Whitlock, Ernest White and by Michael Stairs, the organist who plays these works on the extravagantly large organ at Longwood Gardens.
