The roots of Frederick Delius' Appalachia lay in his experiences as an orange plantation manager in Florida in the late 1880s, where he heard the singing of African-American laborers and, according to his own testimony, first began to think about becoming a composer. The work is subtitled Variations on an Old Slave Song with Final Chorus for baritone, chorus, and orchestra, and everything about it is intriguingly confused. Florida is not part of Appalachia.

Do you know any background info about this album Start the wiki. Both Appalachia and A Song of the High Hills are among Delius' greatest choralorchestral works. Neither has been over recorded has ANY Delius ever been over recorded so this new disc is quite welcome. Although I generally admire Andrew Davis' conducting particularly of Elgar, his earlier recordings of Delius seemed rather lackluster to me. Although I like Mackerras' Delius as a whole, something in his reading of Appalachia doesn't quite click for me the spark just isn't there. My memory of Hickox's reading is that it's very fine but marred by weird balances in the recording. Appalachia, a large-scale set of variations on a slave song with a finale that brings in both a chorus and a baritone soloist, was one of the works that established Delius's reputation when it was first performed in 1904. But it's a unwieldy work, unrolling at a sedate tempo in dense orchestral colours, and while Delius regarded A Song of the High Hills, his musical impression of the mountains of Norway from 1911, as one of his finest achievements, its beauties seem faded now, despite the best efforts of Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony.
