He was a pupil there of Sir Hubert Parrv and resigned his scholarship in 1886. It was not until 1887 that his name became widely known,' from the success of his overture ' Land of the Mountain and Flood '. In 1894, his opera, Jeanie Deans , was produced by the Royal Carl Rosa Company in Edinburgh, and performed in London by the same company after considerable success in the provinces, in 1896.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
