Christopher Wilson (1874-1919) - Shakespeare and music (1922)

https://archive.org/details/cu31924102137522/page/n9/mode/2up

There is an introductory memoir outlining Wilson's short career.

Thank you, sir. After reading the introduction, I am even more surprised that this chap seems to have disappeared almost without trace. I have had a very quick flick through the rest of the book and it strikes me that to have featured and discussed such a wide range of Shakespeare-related compositions, Christopher Wilson must have had an encyclopædic knowledge of music that would put the rest of us to shame. Fascinating.

Christopher Wilson must have had an encyclopædic knowledge of music that would put the rest of us to shame.

Another quality Christopher Wilson had was a considerable gift for delightfully waspish humour at the expense of composers whose work he found inferior. Henry Bishop comes in for more than one hilarious side-swipe; for example, "No one minds Bishop writing a potpourri overture and calling it " Shakespeariana," but why call it "The Comedy of Errors" ? — unless he wishes the title to describe the overture, not the overture the play".

Ouch!

Reading on...

All I can say is if he composed as well as he wrote, the Suite on the new CD (referred to in the thread on the new Bantock CD) will be well worth hearing!
