William Alwyn CBE, 1905 - 1985. An English composer, conductor, and music teacher.
Blackdown: a tone poem from the Surrey Hills provides the soundtrack to this video. It is a tribute to those who fought in an almost forgotten stage of World War Two that stubbornly persisted until the fifteenth of August 1945.
Victory over Japan Day (also known as V-J Day, Victory in the Pacific Day, or V-P Day is the day on which Imperial Japan surrendered in World War II, in effect bringing the war to an end. The term has been applied to both of the days on which the initial announcement of Japan's surrender was made – August 15, 1945, in Japan, and because of time zone differences, August 14, 1945 (when it was announced in the United States and the rest of the Americas and Eastern Pacific Islands) – as well as to September 2, 1945, when the surrender document was signed, officially ending World War II.
August 15 is the official V-J Day for the United Kingdom, while the official US commemoration is September 2nd.
The name, V-J Day, had been selected by the Allies after they named V-E Day for the victory in Europe.

In this video the tribute centres around the 'National Memorial Arboretum' based at Alrewas in rural Staffordshire.
