Extra Information *The only score published for the complete masque was a vocal score arranged by Elgar's friend Hugh Blair. The orchestral parts were apparently destroyed in the 1960s. In 2007 the Elgar Society commissioned the composer Anthony Payne to complete the orchestration of the music, using Elgar's own orchestrations of the movements used in the suite.
