Notes & Reviews:

Stanford was particularly known in his day for his choral works and declared that the poem should always remain the principal consideration, governing all other artistic decisions. He derived some of his most stirring emotions from settings of maritime texts. The fearless constancy and bravery of the Royal Navy clearly inspired him. All the works performed here use poems clearly inspired by the Navy and employing rich imagery of England's naval past.
