Granville Bantock,The Witch of Atlas.

The Witch of Atlas, Bantock's Tone Poem No 5,

is a particularly effective example of his preoccupation with the interpretation of unusual subjects. It was composed in 1902 and first performed on 10 September at the Worcester meeting of the Three Choirs Festival; the composer himself conducted. The subject is derived from Shelley's poem of the same name.
