MetadataShow full item record
Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924) was a prolific composer and a renowned teacher in his own day. He headed the composition department for many years at the Royal Collage of Music in Cambridge and he had as his students such men as Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams. His music and influence were widely known in England at the turn of the century, yet today he is virtually unknown in this country; those who know him at all remember him primarily for his Irish Rhapsody. In England, too, he has suffered a serious decline in popularity. According to Sir Jack Westrup, about the only Stanford works ever performed there are his Songs of the Sea and The Revenge [TRUNCATED]
