Hi Barber, Welcome to the site. I\'ve had a fair old search round, but found nothing helpful. Hopefully, one of the others will come up with an answer or at least a contact to ask at.

I\'ve been trying to find out for ages. It was bugging me because I knew the same piece had been used as background to the \'30 Miler\' Commando test in a documentary made in 1989 by my old friend Ian Wooldridge.
I also remembered that in one set of You Tube comments somebody had asked the same question ref the music - and the question had been answered! The problem was re-finding the answer!
And here it is:

English Folk Song Suite: 3 March  Folk Songs from Somerset
by Ralph Vaughan Williams

Hope that helps.

Now I think about it, it\'s odd that the producers of the Royal Marine Commando training documentary should have chosen \"Folk Songs from Somerset\" when the 30-Miler takes place over Dartmoor - which is, of course, in Devon. Oh well!

I saw the question and before the answer came I e-mailed R4x and received this answer:


Dear Jan
 
Thank you for your email.
 
This music is the English Folk Song Suite, composed by Vaughan Williams and performed by The Academy of St-Martin-in-the-Fields.
 
It appears on the album Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Delius, Warlock, Butterworth.
 
Best wishes
