In 1929, he was declared ‘Britain’s greatest composer’ according to the number of performances of his works. Over the course of his career, he was a church Organist, musical director at London’s Vaudeville Theatre, editor to several music publishing firms and Music Director of the Columbia Gramophone Company.His most popular works are a series of Orchestral tone poems, like this one based on a verse from his own poem, In a Monastery Garden. The simplified version was prepared by the composer.

        Beautiful front cover picture, similar to original. Easier style of play,so available to wider audience.
        sounds a bit 'empty' by comparison with original in places. slightly old fashioned piece, but if you like the original, it is worth a look. Not really for a young player.
