There is so much more of Coleridge-Taylor's music still to explore: major choral works such as Meg Blane, The Atonement, Kubla Khan and A Tale of Old Japan. I would especially be interested in hearing his incidental music beyond Othello (1911), particularly those scores which he wrote for plays by Stephen Phillips (1864-1915)...

...Herod (1900), Ulysses (1901-02), Nero (1906) and Faust (1908).


Unfortunately, much of the material (as happens so often with incidental music) appears to be lost.


Some of it was published but I don't know whether, in each case, it was in a form which has survived publishers' clear-outs. An orchestral suite from Herod was published by Augener & Co. and a song 'Sleep, sleep O King'  by Enoch. Of Ulysses, three numbers were issued by Novello; of Nero, a suite was again published by Novello and of Faust, a suite was published by Boosey & Co. The MS of Faust is in the British Library but it appears incompete.

It doesn't cetainly doesn't augur well for any revivals. Somebody with more fire left in their belly than I have might undertake some sleuthing around the libraries for any surviving performance materials.
