Another work which uses this melody is Alun Hoddinott's 'The Sun, the
Great Luminary of the Universe'. See the programme note at:
I heard this on the BBC a couple of years ago. (I can't say I thought
very highly of it.) I had the problem I have with all settings of this
theme - even Bach's cantata - that they make me wish I was listening to
Berg's concerto instead.
