|First performance of Charles Villiers Stanford's Second Violin Concerto|
|The anthems and service settings of Charles Villiers Stanford form part of the core repertory of Anglican choral music; from the grandest cathedrals to the smallest parish churches, it’s probably safe to say that on any given Sunday, you will find Stanford’s music being sung somewhere. Whilst his choral music has remained extremely popular, his significant orchestral output, which includes seven symphonies and a number of concertos, is less well known.|
