      This work was written in memory of Aubrey Brain, the great horn-player and father of the equally distinguished Dennis Brain. Very shortly after its first performance by the Dennis Brain Ensemble Dennis Brain himself was killed in a motor accident. The work can therefore be regarded as a double tribute to the memory of father and son. 
      The musical notes, A, B, E, B, A, taken from the name Aubrey Brain, are used as a thematic basis for all the movements except the Cortege, which, however, is in B flat minor and is therefore centred round the note B flat (=B in continental nomenclature), thus bringing into prominence the initial B.
– Gordon Jacob, 1962
