(1550 - 1603)

Alan Owen led a double life as a BBC music producer (Matinée Musicale, Friday Night Is Music Night among others) and composer, in which capacity he adopted the pseudonym Alan Langford. Born in London, he studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Benjamin Frankel, and as well as writing light orchestral works, contributed many pieces to the recorded music libraries - they were particularly ‘plundered’ for the Edgar Lustgarten crime series in the 1950s and 1960s. This Galop comes from a Little French Suite he wrote for such a library, but he later expanded it as a concert piece.
