The Couperin pieces were written for harpsichord; the Storace for organ/hpsd, and the Camidge for organ. The Quadrille (in waltz time) is anonymous, arranged by ND for piano.

Christopher Hales and Ben Burrows were both English composers and teachers in the tradition of Parry and Stanford, active around 1920-1960.

I think Christopher taught at Uppingham school. Ben Burrows worked in Leicester.

Played and recorded by Nigel Deacon, August 2011, and can be heard on Youtube at cd11 .
