This superb volume comprises a selection of 20 pieces by Charles Villiers Stanford, the hugely influential composer, conductor, and teacher from the late-Victorian and Edwardian age. It provides the repertoire-hungry organist with preludes, postludes, and shorter descriptive works, suitable for either liturgical or recital use. Alongside new editions of original organ repertoire, there are newly commissioned arrangements of selected choral and piano works, exploring a wide variety of textures and atmospheres. The music reflects Stanford's lyricism and dramatic flair, as well as his considerable compositional range.
