Ralph Williams was born in Down Ampney, Gloucstershire, in 1872.

Most of his early life was spent in the Dorking and Leith Hill area. He eventually gave us nine grand symphonies.

In 1903 he produced the Quintet in C minor for violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano. There are three movements:

1. Allegro con Fuoco
2. Andante
3. Fantasia (quasi variazioni) - Moderato

The performers were The Schubert Ensemble:

Simon Blendis - violin
Douglas Paterson - viola
Jane Salmon - cello
Peter Bucoke - double bass
William Howard - piano

Point of information, Mr Chairman: the 'Vaughan' part of RVW's name is not a given name but constitutes one limb of a double surname. Not all double surnames are hyphenated, and RVW's wasn't (see https://www.ukdeedpolloffice.org/double-barrel-surname/) Hence, it's incorrect to refer to him as 'Ralph Williams'.

In a tangent (uh-oh) likewise nobody refers to "Charles Stanford" without the "Villiers" as the meat in the sandwich...

Agreed. On this basis, we'll be in danger of having "Richard Bennett" or "Peter Davies" next!...

OK, how about William Bennet (without the Sterndale)? Or Edwin Bowen (without the York)?
