about

"Cupid and Rosalind" is a pastoral composition by Charles V. Stanford set to music for chorus. The pastoral is a style that paints a conventionalised picture of rural life, often used as a contrast to the artificiality of city and court life. Originally part of his "6 Elizabethan Pastorales, Op. 49" (1892), this beautiful piece will appeal to students and musicians with a love of classical music. 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 in the 20th century. 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.
