Abstract

Starting with Colin Matthews' addition of 'Pluto' to Holst's The Planets, Payne's 'elaboration of Elgar's 'Third' Symphony, and Maxwell Davies's reflection on Vaughan Wiliams' Sinfonia antartica, this essay considers the vogue of British composers for forming ostentatious contact with their national 'old master' inheritance, in an attempt to renew their visibility and gain the distinctions afforded those to whom they allude.
