Description

Charles Stanford's “Three Motets, Op. 38” contains the complete sheet music three individual compositions: “Justorum Animæ”, “Cœlos Ascendit Hodie”, and “Beati Quorum Via”. They include lyrics and sections for soprano, alto, tenor, bass, and organ. Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (1852 – 1924) was an Irish composer, conductor, and teacher of music. He was educated at the University of Cambridge and continued his studies in Berlin and Leipzig. He was a very influential composer, responsible for making Cambridge University Musical Society an internationally acclaimed organisation. Stanford was also a profuse composer, producing a large corpus of work in many genres; however, he is perhaps best remembered for his Anglican choral works for church performance. His music eventually became overshadowed by that of Edward Elgar and a number of his former pupils in the 20th century. Other notable compositions by Stanford include: “The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan” (1879), “Savonarola” (1883), “The Canterbury Pilgrims” (1883). This volume will appeal to lovers of classical music and is not to be missed by collectors of related literature. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of musical notation.
