The large-scale musical by Frederick Delius was completed in 1903-1904 and first
performed in 1906. The compositional work is an adaptation from a section of
Walt Whitman's compilation "Leaves of Grass, Sea-Drift".
Roy Henderson performed the music with the New English Symphony Orchestra and
Chorus in 1929.
Sea Drift is housed in a beautiful, gold and black embossed 10" circular tin,
which replicates the majesty of that early label – a bust of Beethoven presiding
over the bold claim 'THE SUPREME RECORD'. Each set has a numbered fact sheet,
and the records themselves are protected by die cut foam discs. 90 years later,
Sea Drift is a perfect souvenir for the label’s special birthday.
