After being asked by Lengnick, Malcolm Arnold's publisher, to write a piece similar to Dvorak's Slavonic Dances, Arnold composed his first set of English Dances, Opus 27, for orchestra in 1950.  It was premiered on April 14, 1951, by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Sir Adrian Boult conducting.  Though Arnold utilized the style of English folk music, all material is original.  No folk songs are used.  Maurice Johnstone arranged the work for wind band.
