Notes & Reviews:

Writing in the journal Musical Opinion in 1936, Havergal Brian hailed Arnold Cooke (1906-2005) as one of the most promising young British composers of his time. After studying with Paul Hindemith in Germany, Cooke taught at the Royal Manchester College of Music until shortly before World War II. From 1947 until retirement he was professor of harmony, counterpoint, and composition at Trinity College of Music in London. Cooke is a representative of the continued flowering of the European Baroque traditions, but to this he brings a specifically English lyricism and lucidity that gives his music a character all his own.
