Quoted from the programme notes from "Gregson Vol 2"
"The Plantagenets tries to portray the mood and feelings of an age- that of the House of Plantagenet, which lasted from the middle of the 12th century to the end of the 14th century. To many it conjures up an Age of Chivalry and this is is represented by fanfare motifs, which occur throughout the work in varied form."

Interested to hear how many different interpretations of the 4/4 semiquaver patterns after figs 1 and 21, and who technically is correct. I want to play them as they are written ie 4 semis, though recordings I've heard seem to put more emphasis on a triplet rhythym Anyone care to comment on how they are playing/conducting these particular bars?
who strictly speaking wasn't actually ever king. However that reminds me of the Plantagenets' two main activities:many great kings were from the plantagent family including,
Edward the Black Prince (our first Prince of Wales)
Our MD is giving both those bars as 5 beats (3 crotchet and 2 quaver beats)......which does kind of make it sound a bit' tripletty'....Not sure if that helps, but it works in as much as we all hit the downbeat of the next bar together (more or less:-?).....
