A Song of Agincourt & other works

See: https://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/dc.asp?dc=D_CDA68283

The Travelling Companion

See: http://www.thestanfordsociety.org/2019/05/23/recording-of-stanfords-the-travelling-companion-to-be-released-in-september-2019

Stanford is not a composer I have had much enthusiasm for over the years.  However, knowing that The Travelling Companion was due to be released on CD this year and on recently becoming acquainted with the excerpts from the excellent 1995 BBC broadcast, I now eagerly await the release of the SOMM CD.

A Song of Agincourt is available on this site but I am not aware of any previous commercial recording.  The medieval song has, of course, been incorporated into works by Dyson, Vaughan Williams and, in my view most stirringly, Walton. Having listened to excerpts on Hyperion's web page, this is a CD I will also purchase.

What a superb programme!

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)

I entirely agree with Albion! A very well thought out programme - as one would expect from any involvement of the Stanford expert Jeremy Dibble.
Who would have thought a few years ago that there would be such a revival of Stanford's choral music?

Wonderful news! Now that almost all his orchestral music is recorded (some of it more than once), it's great to see the choral and even operatic music finding its way to us. Maybe The Critic will be available before I'm too old to hear it.

You might be interested to know which purely orchestral music Stanford composed which has NOT been recorded:

1881:      Serenade for orchestra in G major, op.18: 25 minutes   *
1895:      Suite of Ancient Dances for orchestra, op.58: 15 minutes    *
1903:      Four Irish Dances for orchestra, op.89
1908:      Installation March for military band, op.108
1917-18: An Irish Concertino for Violin, Cello and Orchestra, op.161: 19 minutes  *
1921:      Variations for Violin and Orchestra, op.180

In case of the Variations I seem to remember that Albion once wrote that they are available in a version with piano only. On the other hand, I am not sure whether the Irish Concertino for Violin, Cello and Orchestra, Op. 161, has been commercially recorded.

Holger is perfectly correct. I had missed the Irish Concertino, op. 161. I have added it to my list. Many thanks!
