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...

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)
