Program Notes

Seventeen Come Sunday is the opening movement of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Folk Song Suite. It was written for military band, and premiered in 1923 as a four-movement suite. After the premiere, Vaughan Williams removed the second movement (entitled Sea Songs) which was published as a separate work, thus making the suite a three-movement work for publication.

The first movement of the suite, a march, is comprised of three English folk songs, Seventeen Come Sunday, Pretty Caroline, and Dives and Lazarus. The Folk Song Suite is one of Vaughan Williams’ most popular and most performed works for band.
