Norfolk Rhapsody No.1 by Ralph Vaughan Williams

From Wikipedia:

Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1 in E Minor (1906, rev. 1914) is an orchestral rhapsody by Ralph Vaughan Williams based on folk songs he had collected in the English county of Norfolk, in particular in the port town of King's Lynn and the surrounding region. It is one of a set of three orchestral rhapsodies of 1905–06 based on Norfolk folk songs; Norfolk Rhapsody No. 2 in D minor still exists in a fragmentary form and has been reconstructed by Stephen Hogger, but the third Norfolk Rhapsody is lost.[1]
