Taking the Air at Attingham Park by Catherine Wilson emanates a grandeur and elegance that creates a majestic feel.
The ostinato pattern in the left hand suggests movement while the arpeggiated chords in the right hand combined with the lyrical melody add to the regal feel that is evident in and around the English country house and estate in Shropshire that was built 1783-5 and is now owned by the National Trust.
