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. This volume contains the original sheet music for six Irish folk-songs, composed by Stanford and written by Sir Thomas Moore. They include: "Oh! Breathe Not His Name", "What the Bee is to the Flow'ret", "At the Mid Hour of Night", "The Sword of Erin", "It is Not the Tear", and "Oh, The Sight Entrancing". The music is for alto, tenor, bass and piano. 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.
