A Chronicle of First Broadcast Performances of Musical Works in the United Kingdom, 1923-1996
Ashgate, 2001 - 798 pages
This text investigates the development of the British musical tradition. It highlights works by well-known composers such as Hymn of Praise by Mendelssohn, Dream of Gerontius by Elgar, Blest Pair of Sirens by Parry, music by Arthur Sullivan through to the first performances of Vaughan William's symphonies, Tippett's A Child of our Time, and Britten's War Requiem, as well examining the works of some of the less well-known such as Hamish McCunn, George Macfarren, Sterndale Bennett, Frederic Cowen. The book places these composers and musicians together in an attempt to show how much music was performed in the space of 150 years. It also looks at leading musical organizations of the 19th and 20th centuries, musical venues and overseas musicians.
