Conducted by PETER MONTGOMERY
Stanford was perhaps the most dominating influence in British music up to the War. Many of the leading composers of today passed through his hands, either at the Royal College of Music or at Cambridge University. Despite Stanford's extensive teaching and conducting activities, he found time to write an enormous amount of fine music, including operas, symphonies, chamber works, and songs. Much of his work has an Irish flavour, as is only natural with a man who had more knowledge than any musician living of the folk-music of his native country. Indeed, the ' Petrie Collec tion of Irish Music ', which Stanford edited, is the standard authority.
Sir Hamilton Harty carries on Stanford's tradition in that he favours classical forms and all his music is strongly flavoured with the Irish idiom. He began his musical career as an organist. In 1900 he came to London and soon made a great reputation as an accompanist, and a)so as a composer of considerable gifts and individuality. During recent years Sir Hamilton Harty has been so occupied with conducting that he has had little time for composition.

- not those of today.
