Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Sir Hubert Parry composed some of the most masterful and moving choral music of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. His magnificent coronation anthem for Edward VII, 'I was glad', and his setting of Blake's mystical poem 'Jerusalem rightly' remain famous, while his 'Magnificat' and 'Nunc dimittis' display his debt to Anglican musical traditions. The 'Songs of Farewell' draw psalms and English poetry together into a charming garland, and 'Long since in Egypt's plenteous land' from his oratorio 'Judith' sets the composer's own prayerful text.
