Main: English Composers

A cou­ple of days late for St George’s Day — but of course it’s debat­able whether the Eng­lish should have much spe­cial regard for him at all, although such regard goes back a long way — we present a pro­gramme of clas­si­cal and light clas­si­cal music by Eng­lish com­posers, both well-known and too often for­got­ten. The pro­gramme includes some real gems, such as Par­ry’s Blest Pair of Sirens, which is heard far too sel­dom out­side the con­text of roy­al events.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. Lis­ten to the pro­gramme now at — out­side the US, tune to in-world, or sim­ply click here if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to launch a play­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly.
