Notes & Reviews:

Gordon Jacob (1895-1984) was a pupil of Vaughan Wiliams and of Stanford at the Royal College of Music, which he attended from 1920 to 1924. He was then taken onto its teaching staff, resigning in 1966. In the year of the Festival of Britain (1951), he had three London premieres, but beginning with the promotion of the avant-garde by the BBC in 1959, the music of his generation began to fall into disrepute and is only now being rediscovered. Jacob's output of some four hundred works comprises instrumental, vocal, choral, and chamber music for every conceivable combination of instruments and voices. These two works were written fifteen years apart, with a personal language that was unique to Jacob.
