Notes & Reviews:

A towering figure of the English musical establishments, whilst remaining an Irishman in his blood and bones until his dying day, Stanford wrote more than thirty works for chorus and orchestra as well as seven symphonies. This is the premiere recording of Stanford's great 'Requiem Mass', which was composed in memory of the painter Lord Leighton, a figure of enormous stature in English culture and society.
