A succinct biography accompanies historical, analytical, and critical investigations of Willan s instrumental music, asserting Willan s seminal place in Canadian music and the significance of his orchestral and wind band music both nationally and internationally.Each composition is investigated in chronological order to illustrate the composer s evolution as a creator of instrumental music from his early years in England to his later, and more notable, accomplishments in Canada.

Willan s orchestral music may be seen as both a reaction to and a stimulus for the significant improvement in Canadian orchestral performance during the 1930s and 40s, a factor in the creation of his large-scale compositions, including two symphonies and a piano concerto.Although much has been written about Willan, most of it has centred on his choral work, with biography and/or musicology as the frame of reference- this project considers his instrumental music in terms of performance, provides historical context for many of the works included, and corrects errors that have crept into the literature.
