Everybody who is fond of singing knows the song ' 0 tell me, nightingale ' and the song-cycle ' In a Persian Garden ', but few remember the composer of these as one of the leading sopranos of the closing years of the last century.
Born in London in 1862 of an artistic and intellectual family, Liza Lehmann studied singing with many masters, and during her public career of ten years she rose to the top of her profession. In 1894 she married Herbert Bedford , the composer, abandoned the concert platform, and devoted herself to composition. At the end of two years' study she amazed her friends by producing her first and most famous song-cycle, ' In a Persian Garden '.
