Stanford, Charles Villiers (1852-1924)

Irish composer (Sir) Charles Stanford has all but faded from public attention. Overlapping with both Elgar and the younger generation, he was first outshone by the former, and then by Bliss, Holst and Vaughan Williams (all of whom were his students). It did not help that he studied in Germany: his works were vilefied as being in the German academic tradition.
