"Although Delius spent a great deal of time abroad he never forgot his English roots," says Alan. "One of his favourite places was Filey, near Scarborough! He loved playing cricket there. He composed this piece after he moved to Leipzig to study music but I think it's got whiffs of Filey and the Yorkshire cliffs and I think it's Delius's wistful longing to be back, looking out to sea, enjoying the clear skies and the warmth of the sun."
