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.

The Brisk Young Sailor (Who Returned to wed his True Love) is a simple, short, jaunty tune meant to evoke the image of a strapping young lad striding up the road to meet his sweetheart. This movement is considered one of the most difficult movements of the piece because of its speed and need for accuracy. The trumpet runs and interplay at tempo are quite difficult.
