    A Centenary Tribute to Hubert Parry

    Composer, teacher and music historian Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, 1st Baronet, died in 1918. Today his music, which epitomised late Victorian and Edwardian England, is best known from his setting of Blake’s poem ‘Jerusalem’, the coronation anthem I was glad, the choral and orchestral ode Blest Pair of Sirens, and the tune Repton for the hymn ‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’. This recital to mark his centenary comprises music, in addition to Parry’s own, by colleagues, friends and pupils, much of which appeared in A Little Organ Book in Memory of Hubert Parry.
