Thread Name: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
Subject: RE: George Butterworth
I suppose his two most famous pieces are the tone poems A Shropshire Lad and The Banks Of Green Willow. He did write some splendid songs too. He was a friend of Vaughan Williams. A wonderful talent wasted in battle.
