Charles Villiers Stanford's Six Irish Folksongs, Opus 78
Charles Villiers Stanford The Shedd Choral Society performs Charles Villiers Stanford's Six Irish Folksongs, Opus 78. Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924) was an Irish composer, music teacher, and conductor. Among his students were rising composers whose fame went on to surpass his own, such as Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams. His music reflects the late 19th-century Romantic style, into which he introduced elements of Irish folk song, contributing to his enduring appeal.
