Parker is far worthier of commemoration than that lout Fitzenhagen, whose butchered version of Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations still seems be preferred by the vast majority of cellists over the composer's own. What can they be they thinking about?  Angry

Hora novissima, Op.30 (1893) is an outstanding choral work which should be regularly performed: a new recording would be very welcome. I'd love to hear more of Parker's music, especially The Legend of St Christopher, Op.43 (1898)...
