This arrangement of National Airs from around the UK has been heard for many years at the start up of BBC Radio 4 first thing in the morning. It brings together traditional tunes from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland including Early one morning, Rule Britannia, The Londonderry Air, Annie Laurie, What shall we do with the drunken sailor?, Greensleeves, Men of Harlech and Scotland the Brave. This work has never previously been published for sale.
Early in 2006 the BBC announced that the theme would cease to be used from April 2006. This caused consternation amongst the many devotees of the early morning musical fantasy. No need for a radio - now you can play it yourself!
