This Hyperion programme is stunning. When considered in the context of the recent Lyrita release of The Mass "Via Victrix" and "At the Abbey Gate", we now have an amazing conspectus of Stanford's work available to us: from the early concertos (1870s) on Dutton to the sadly-neglected late works there is always much to admire in this composer. The 6 Irish Rhapsodies, the 7 Symphonies, Concertos (4 piano, 3 violin, cello, clarinet), the Requiem and the Stabat mater... Yes, there are still significant gaps to be filled, including the Op.66 Te Deum (1898) but it is good to see his chamber music coming back to life (Hyperion and Somm).

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)
