Sea Sorrow was first published in Songs Of The Hebrides, a 1909 collection of Gaelic Folk Songs by the Scottish composer and singer Marjory Kennedy-Fraser. It has been arranged for Double Choir with Alto Soloist by Granville Bantock.
Sir Granville Bantock (1868-1946) was a British composer, conductor and educator. He channelled his energetic and creative personality into many musical projects, championing the works of Jean Sibelius, founding the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and composing many splendid classical pieces. Viewed by his contemporaries as out-of-date, his music is now being appreciated as one of the last great contributions from the English Romantic movement.
