In a Summer Garden (1908, rev. 1911) - Piano transcription by Peter Warlock (1921, published 1982)
An orchestral fantasy by English composer Frederick Delius (1862-1934), arranged for solo piano by his admirer and colleague Peter Warlock, a.k.a. Philip Arnold Heseltine (1894-1930). The score contains two literary quotations. The first is a couplet by Dante Gabriel Rossetti:
"All are my blooms; and all sweet blooms of love. To thee I gave while Spring and Summer sang."
The second is of unknown origin:
"Roses, lilies, and a thousand scented flowers. Bright butterflies, flitting from petal to petal. Beneath the shade of ancient trees, a quiet river with water lilies. In a boat, almost hidden, two people. A thrush is singing in the distance."
