    Program Notes
    Wilfred Heaton’s compositions have a worldwide appreciation and although his output was small it is work of the highest integrity and calibre. The history surrounding Celestial Prospect is somewhat sketchy. The composer describes it as a ‘re-casting’ of an earlier work written sometime in the 1940’s the score of which is now lost. The theme ‘Come comrades dear’ has been known from the ‘Christian Mission’ days of The Salvation Army and reflects the composer’s penchant for old Salvation Army tunes which are simple and direct in character. The following five variations contain much interest and originality including a beautiful elegy to departed comrades.
