Sir Alexander Mackenzie, the greatest Scottish composer of his generation, was now very much an elder statesman of the musical world, but still willing to try his luck at opera. This short piece was launched in a double-bill with another new British work, The Perfect Fool, by Holst. Neither made any lasting impression.
