Britannia Triumphans (1953)



The suite of Elizabethan dances was performed in collaboration with Suzanne Bloch and her group of Early Music students. “Here, with limited pupil resources, Tudor had to reconstruct dances of the Elizabethan period, evoking the atmosphere of a theatrical genre long since vanished.” (Doris Hering)
