Charles Villiers Stanford, acclaimed composer and teacher of generations of students in Cambridge and at the Royal College of Music, became a pillar of late Victorian and Edwardian society.

His songs are performed here in company with works by his pupils Muriel Herbert and the man she loved, Roger Quilter. Herbert’s daughter, the author Claire Tomalin, introduces this recital.
