The Symphonic Poem "King Alfred" was composed in Wantage between June 2009 and February 2010 and illustrates different aspects of the character and life of Alfred of Wessex, a 9th Century Saxon sovereign which is known for having resisted viking invasions and thrown the bases for an English nation.

The piece doesn't tell a story: it presents a set of pictures. It is not indeed a sequential account of the events occuring during Alfred's life, but musical impressions of what made Alfred known and remembered for.

The poem starts with a theme associated to Alfred himself, that develops and interacts with folk melodies representing cultural influences in Anglo-Saxon England. These themes are shadowed by echos of war triggered by the looming Dane invasion, and reappear through Alfred's answer to the threat: the creation of the British Navy. Country, culture and king then join again in a celebration of what earned Alfred his title of "Alfred the Great".
