A Lincolnshire Posy, considered Grainger's masterpiece, was composed for concert band in 1937. The work is composed of six movements, each adapted from folk songs that Grainger had collected on a 1905–1906 trip to Lincolnshire, England. Grainger maintained the personality and quirks of each singer he heard on his trip, creating a a musical portrait of the singer's personality and musical style.

Lord Melbourne is a fierce and heavy war song that opens in free time. This movement slides rapidly into different time signatures including unconventional ones such as 5/8 and 3/8, as well as having sections of free time.
