Roderick Williams is the protagonist in this tale of a Spanish conquistador's disastrous sixteenth century expedition. This exquisite portrayal of greed and destruction is told through veiled references to sixteenth century styles in a colourful score. Ethel Smyth's vignettes are tinged with French impressionism, while an instrumental interlude by Gabriel Jackson evokes an afternoon on the Somerset hills.
