I do not normally go back and revise old music, but I made an exception in this case. The original version of A Train Through Yorkshire was rushed to meet a short deadline. As a result, it didn’t turn out as well as I intended. I finally decided the thematic material deserved a better treatment. 11 years later, after I just completed another orchestra work, I had some free time to work on this. Originally for concert band, I believed it would sound just as interesting if not better with an orchestra. I will also be revising the band version very soon and should have the final revised version out by the end of September.
