Thank you Bill!

You’ll be pleased to know the SCT Christmas piece was also played on Radio 3 on Wednesday last:

Coleridge-Taylor also of course featured in the 100 ‘Best of British’ composers list a while ago: 

(I talked to them about the Quintet), and he was ‘Composer of the Week’ in June 2014: , including some previously unrecorded vocal music (but not sure if you can actually play the programme, since you’re not in the UK?).

We continue to seek ways to take SCT’s legacy forward.  Fingers firmly crossed for 2016.
