Charles Stanford: Partsongs, Eight, Op 119

Books | SATB

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Composer: Charles Stanford
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A jewel of English music, The Blue Bird first appeared as the third of these eight-part songs to words by the Victorian poet and novelist Mary Coleridge. Published shortly after her death in 1908, Op. 119 is the first of two such cycles composed in response to the refined sensibility of her poetry, which proved an ideal match for Stanford’s mastery of word-setting and of the romantic choral idiom.
