On 27th October last year Radio 3 broadcast the premiere of Stanford's late Mass Via Victrix with Welsh forces conducted by Adrian Partington - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06q6l7n. Please could anyone who recorded this upload a decent-quality MP3 file? Many thanks.

Thanks, Colin. It would be great to hear this performance, please could you contact the relevant member? Given the sad state of affairs over Grace Williams' Missa Cambrensis it is important to archive these broadcasts even if they are flagged for hypothetical commercial release...

Having now spent time with Stanford's late Mass Via Victrix (1919) it seems to me that it can take a very worthy place alongside his Mass in G (1892), Requiem (1897), Te Deum (1898) and Stabat mater (1907), a setting of the text conceived on a grand scale. His conservative style should not be mistaken for complacency, as within it's idiom there was still plenty of opportunity for heart-felt expression which Stanford taps into time and again...
