Something for Thursday

I heard this delightfully, pompously British piece on the radio yesterday and promptly fell in love with it. Here's the London Suite by Eric Coates, in a live performance.

(Oddly, the applause at the end of the piece sounds tepid, but I'm guessing that's the microphoning and not really a good gauge of the audience's actual reaction to the work, because they soon shift into rhythmic applause, which is right up there with the standing ovation.)
