Bramshill was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the British police staff college. In 1953 the Home Office purchased Bramshill House from Lord Brocket. The present building was constructed principally by Edward, 11th Baron Zouche between c. 1605-1625. The music is written in large ternary form as a concert rondo. There are features within which depict various facets of the early history of Bramshill House with that of its current role as the police staff college. After a declamatory six bar opening in the key of C minor the piece leads towards the principal theme, introduced by the horn, quietly accompanied by chords from the clarinets, a haunting, ethereal theme that depicts the mystery of the ancient building and its numerous reported wraiths.
