By a strange coincidence, Sibley has now given us an extended-length
work (The Pagoda of Flowers) by the much-travelled Amy Woodforde-Finden.

Frank Bridge wasn't the only F. Bridge who wrote music.

If you like VSs with plenty of piano solo interest, Elgar's The Spanish Lady Op89
is worth a look. It's an unfinished work, like the third symphony, and his only
attempt at opera writing. It has plenty of curiosity value, and I'd like to scan it,
but Novello's Percy Young edition is still in copyright. Even so, I just thought
it ought to be flagged up.

Charles Vincent edited a rather nice album of 50 Shakespeare songs,
which is freely downloadable here, in various formats, including both
colour and b/w pdfs. (See the 'View the book' box.)

I'm delighted to see that Sibley has now uploaded two major works
by a much neglected Englishman, John Francis Barnett (who did
a completion of Schubert's Symphony in E amongst other things).
The Eve of Saint Agnes by Keats is my favourite poem by my
favourite poet, so that's an added bonus!

Publication Name: The eve of St. Agnes, Cantata for soli, chorus, and orchestra
URL: https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1

Composer:Barnett, John, Francis (1837 - 1916)
Author:Keats, John (1795 - 1821)


Publication Name: The ancient mariner; a cantata
URL: https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1

Composer:Barnett, John, Francis (1837 - 1916)
Author:Coleridge, Samuel, Taylor (1772 - 1834)

Sibley's latest batch of files includes these two works from
one of my favourite composers from these isles.
Why his stature here isn't on a par with Elgar's is something
I'll never understand.

Publication Name: Te Deum : for soli, chorus and orchestra, op.66 / composed by Charles Villiers Stanford ; pianoforte score, arranged by the composer.
URL: https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1

Composer:Stanford, Charles, Villiers, Sir (1852 - 1924)


Publication Name: Magnificat : for eight-part chorus (a capella) / composed by Charles Villiers Stanford ; Op. 164.
URL: https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1

Composer:Stanford, Charles, Villiers, Sir (1852 - 1924)
