Della is a dignified, lyrical, and impassioned tale of thwarted love, initially composed in 1938 and revised many years later. After the slow introductory bars, the music quickens and the texture becomes more contrapuntal. A version of Della was published by the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) in 2008, but this is probably not so authentic as the new ACE version, which is based on an original manuscript.
