This volume presents new editions of the ballets The Wise Virgins (based on the music of J.

S. Bach) and The Quest, works Walton completed in the 1940s. The full score of The Quest reveals Walton's original orchestration for the first time. Also published for the first time are the recently discovered three numbers from The Wise Virgins which, together with those of the Suite, comprised the complete ballet.

The volume has anextended Preface explaining the fascinating history behind the works and a full textual commentary.

The scores have been entirely re-set, and new orchestral parts on hire/rental produced to match the new editions. Orchestral material is available on hire/rental.
