Members are strongly recommended to explore Somm's extensive catalogue of music by Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924), including a now-completed cycle of the eight string quartets (perhaps the first really significant contributions to the genre in Britain) and a truly lovely disc of partsongs.


I couldn't agree more about the Somm cycle of string quartets (all of which I have as downloads) but I don't know the partsongs (apart from the delightfull but ubiqiotous The Bluebird). It looks as if my pension might have to take another hit. Undecided
