7. Harold Darke: Fantasy in E major
The English organist Harold Darke is celebrated mainly as the composer of a version of the carol, 'In the Bleak Midwinter'. Less well-known are Darke's instrumental works. This introspective piece is perhaps more familiar as an organ work but has recently been given a fine string orchestration and recorded by the Chamber Ensemble of London.
