Cadences is a continuous single audio track constructed from the last few notes that signal the end of each orchestral work. The symphonies and concertos were written in the late 19th and early 20th century by English composers collectively known as the pastoral school, including: Frederick Delius, Edward Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Peter Warlock, George Butterworth, Ivor Gurney, Gerald Finzi, Ernest Moeran, John Ireland and Gustav Holst. Many of these works are closely bound to specific landscapes.
