    Abstract

    Stanford made a significant contribution to musical life in England throughout the course of his life and posthumously. Unfortunately, much of Stanford’s early posthumous reception is clouded by Herbert Howells’ statement above which can be attributed to the lack of performances of Stanford’s works outside of the choral and church and song tradition. Although Howells correctly commends Stanford for his achievements in these fields, Stanford’s accomplishments in other areas must be accounted for in order to portray a more fully-realized picture of a composer who enriched musical life in England. This article seeks to unveil the changing images of Stanford portrayed during his lifetime and posthumously.
