Five Elizabethan Pastorals - Corydon, Arise!, Diaphenia, Sweet Love for Me, Praised be Diana, Cupid and Rosalind - Sheet Music Arranged for Chorus, So

Charles Villiers Stanford

This volume contains the complete sheet music for five compositions by Charles Villiers Stanford, including Corydon, Arise!, Diaphenia, Sweet Love for Me, Praised Diana, and Cupid and Rosalind. These 'pastorals' were originally composed for Anglican Church performances. Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (1852 - 1924) was an Irish composer, conductor, and teacher of music. He was educated at the University of Cambridge and continued his studies in Berlin and Leipzig. He was a very influential composer, responsible for making Cambridge University Musical Society an nternationally acclaimed organisation. Stanford was also a profuse composer, producing a large corpus of work in many genres; however, he is perhaps best remembered for his Anglican choral works for church performance. His music eventually became overshadowed by that of Edward Elgar and a number of his former pupils in the 20th century. Other notable compositions by Stanford include: "The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan" (1879), "Savonarola" (1883), "The Canterbury Pilgrims" (1883). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of musical notation.
