Notes About Music: Willan’s own early catalogue gives 24 December 1907 as the completion date of Trio in b minor. Later information strongly suggests that this was just one movement and that he worked on the whole work up to 1915. According to Leo Smith’s programme notes for a 1916 performance the work was written 1909-1915. The Finale was probably written first.
